Farm to Fork Fondo - Hudson Valley, New York - June 10
Escape to rows of rich black fields standing guard like soldiers against the pressure of the world's most iconic urban landscape. Breathe deeply as you pedal through the beautiful rural region that has been supplying food to the masses for centuries.
In New York's lower Hudson Valley, dairy farms, orchards, vegetable growers and vineyards characterize the region's agricultural horn of plenty. The area is filled with families that have dedicated their lives to farming, from eighth-generation stalwarts to newcomers drawn to the region's climate, soil and access to metropolitan markets.
