Agriculture is vital to the health of rural communities such as the Saratoga region. Yet, for many years, the health of agriculture has been in doubt. The average age of those who farm full-time is over 60, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture continually reports that the number of young people who choose to farm for a living is on the decline.

Albert Einstein once described experience as the ultimate source of knowledge. In a similar vein, many people have embraced the spirit of teaching that is captured in the saying, “give a person a fish and you feed them for a day; teach them to fish and you feed them for life.” For farmers and food processors, these ideas carry substantial truth. With that in mind, the Saratoga Farmers’ Market will begin a new “do it yourself” learning series in which…

Hello Foodie Friends! Summer is a great time to cook outdoors or to make some of the delicious salads that we tend to avoid during the winter months. Both my wife and I love Cobb Salads made with diced tomatoes, avocado, chicken, cheese, diced egg, and crispy bacon or adding bacon to potato salads.
