The Tour de Fork lunch featured after Madison County’s Tour de Farms inaugural bike ride event on Saturday, September 22nd was a scrumptious testament to the deliciousness of local foods.

The pumpkin and apple soup made with New York apples, Lucky Moon (Cazenovia) farm’s pumpkin and Critz Farm (Cazenovia)’s Maple Moon Hard cider, finished with Meadowood Farm (Cazenovia)’s sheep yogurt warmed all riders despite the rain.

As the Tour de Farms bike ride started and ended at Critz Farms, it was also the perfect opportunity to enjoy their Fall Harvest Festival happening from now til mid October as well as pick up fall goodies including their farm grown apples and pumpkins!

    My son and I participated in the ride and the meal. The challenging weather only increased our enjoyment of the hot delicious meal and friendly atmosphere! My favorites were the roasted vegetables (Hartwood Farms and Stone Brothers), sauted mushrooms (Fruit of the Fungi), and grass-based butter (Kriemhild Dairy). Bonus that everything was local!!

    The bratwurst and apple fritters were especially amazing… but the apples that I bought at Critz Farm honestly taste like candy they are so sweet and delicious!
