Event Details


Farming today in the New York region is more than ever a creative act, often requiring unique solutions by individual farmers to questions about what to grow, how to farm and how to market their products.  The New Farmers dinner will begin with presentations by several local foodshed farmers, explaining how they carved out their own individual answers to these questions and what their lives are like.  Participants include Marc and Susan Jaffe of Snow Dance Farm, Mark Dunau and Lisa Wujnovich of Mountain Dell Farm, Tim and Mary Tonjes of Tonjes Dairy Farm, Greg Swartz and Tannis Dowalchuk of Willow Wisp Organic Farm and Richard Giles of Lucky Dog Farm.  Also participating is Jennifer Grossman, who, working for the Open Space Institute, helped assemble “Ground Up”, a detailed study describing how these farms work.  The dinner itself will be a harvest-time, family-style meal, featuring produce and meats raised by the farmers themselves and which they regard with special pride.


This goes to a brief summary of the Open Space Institute “Ground Up” report and has a link to the full report as a pdf, dense with interesting detail:
