“The Dutchess County Economic Development Corp. believes the Adams family’s tenacity deserves recognition. This year, Adams Fairacre Farms is the county agency’s grand award winner for business excellence — an acknowledgment that includes a dinner reception with more than 300 people, a trophy and bragging rights.”
“The supermarket cost more than $18 million to build, the economic development agency said. It provided 50 construction jobs and 250,000 employment hours for local construction workers, according to Journal archives.”
“‘Since the store opened, it has created another 200 jobs, bringing the total to 1,000 at all four locations’, Adams company spokesman William Lessner said.”
