Eating locally and seasonally has been an ever growing idea as food has entered the cultural spotlight. Although it’s easy not to think about how your grocery store gets strawberries to sell in the middle of the winter, the trend is moving toward more conscious and concerned eaters.
An hour and a half north of New York City lies Fishkill Farms. The 100-year-old family-owned farm produces various fruits, vegetables and eggs. Fishkill Farms believes in growing food in a holistic, ecologically sound way – their produce isn’t shipped around the country, but sold by their employees to local farmers markets and restaurants in New York.
