- Diversification is the key to resiliency for Brookside Maple & Farm. Brothers Matthew and Micah built the first section of their sap house in 2008 while still in their teens. They now have over 3,000 taps and have expanded their herd of grass fed and finished beef animals. The farm also offers lamb and pastured chicken and turkeys, and a variety of Mom Carolyn’s beautiful wool products and soaps. A Pure Catskills tent and staff will be at this location.
- Birdsong Farm Community Garden is a unique collaboration between CCE and benefactor Richard Lamson. Environmentally friendly practices are used to grow an abundance of produce in raised beds. The project is managed by CCE educators and Master Gardener Volunteers. Participants learn/work together and share in the harvest. Excess fruits and vegetables are donated to local food pantries and directly to families in need.
