Farmer and Chef Scott Boggs directs farming at Madava Farms in Dover Plains, NY, the home of Crown Maple Syrup. Founded in 2010, 800-acre Madava Farms is slated to open to the public beginning this fall. Offerings will focus on engaging visitors in culinary and nature experiences on the forested farm through tours, tastings, farm to table dining and special events. Scott began the culinary expansion of Madava in spring 2012, adding a 4 acre commercial scale chef’s garden, featuring an eclectic variety of specialty produce.
Most recently, Scott served as the Director of Agriculture for New York City’s Biergarten LLC, which includes The Spotted Pig, The Breslin and The John Dory. Scott originally hails from the west coast, where he began his culinary career following graduation from Johnson & Wales. It was at Thomas Keller’s The French Laundry in California’s Napa Valley where an early passion for growing and raising food was further fueled by an opportunity to work outside the kitchen and serve as The French Laundry’s culinary gardener.
Scott was next recruited by Lee Hudson to help develop and manage Hudson Ranch, an offshoot of the famous Hudson Vineyards in the Carneros region of Napa. Through the ranch, Scott diversified Hudson’s agri-presence within the region by growing specialty fruits and vegetables while pasture raising livestock including pigs, fowl and cattle. With Madava Farms, Scott has found a professional home, expanding the image of the contemporary farmer while continuing to influence both the farming and culinary fields.
