There are still many farms in the Hudson Valley. So the Hudson Valley Food Lovers Festival in Copake Lake is an event to partake of the local bounty and show your support for the local farmers.
Make a full day of it. As you can see from the schedule of events there will be all sorts of activities.
At these events you will be able to talk with wine makers, brewers, chefs and farmers.
Best of all, most of the profit will go towards a Friends of the Farmer scholarship for someone majoring in Agricultural Science.
