Think Local campaign boosting the Hudson Valley food chain
DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. — Poughkeepsie’s Sprout Creek Farm has 200 acres of free ranging animals, producing award winning cheeses. They’ve gotten a boost from Adams Fairacre Farms who stocks their product for their locally minded customers.
“Quantities doubling, tripling in some cases, because, of course, consumers buying from them are catching onto that trend as well,” said cheese maker Colin McGrath of Sprout Creek Farm.
“We love our local farmers because we are getting the best quality and the freshest ingredients as we need it, right to the store,” said Adams Fairacre Farms cheese associate Debbie Decker.
