Farm Fresh

Take any road through Dutchess County, head in any direction, and eventually, you'll pass a farm. More likely, several. Agriculture is a driving economic force in the Hudson Valley, and a way of life. To get the complete Hudson Valley Farm Fresh experience, avail yourself of the many opportunities to enjoy its bounty.

Many family-owned farms welcome you to pick-your-own produce, make purchases from their farm stands, or join them during family-oriented festivals. Vineyards will invite you to taste their vintages from local grapes, and perhaps stay for a picnic or concert.

For broader exposure to Hudson Valley's homegrown, farm fresh artisanal products, visit a farmers' market - a one-stop-shopping opportunity. Several towns in Dutchess County host these weekly, and sometimes year round. Or, try a specialty food shop, where you can pack your picnic basket with fresh cheeses, breads, and other locally-crafted delicacies.

If farm-to-table eating is your passion, and you ardently support the Slow Food movement, you'll appreciate a day immersed in Dutchess County's culinary Hudson Valley culture. Do it on your own with our suggested self-guided itineraries, or join a like-minded group on our scheduled Farm Fresh tours.
