Art of Local
On Saturday, March 24th at Robibero Family Vineyards, we held our first stop on our On the Road with the "Art of Local". A wonderful time was had tasting Robibero's Wines and the great selection of tastings of cheeses and local foods. Ulster County's Acorn Hill Farm had a large selection of Goat Cheeses that were fantastic paired with different Robibero's wines. The Chef's Consortium made the most delicious and unique tastings from products donated by our members; Jane's Homemade Ice cream, Beth's Farm Kitchen, Farm-to-Table Co-packers, The Alternative Baker, and Hawthorne Valley Farm Store. It was a great afternoon that showed what fantastic local food artisans we have in Ulster County.
