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.
Empire Buffalo (farm in Fenner)’s roast bison, topped with Hartwood Farms caramelized onions and Ingallside Meadow (farm in Lincoln)’s bratwurst served with Foothill Hops (Town of Stockbridge) mustard were well deserved after the ride through scenic rolling hills.
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.
The drinks were local too and included Foothill Hops Farms Hops Lemonade, Critz’s Hard and Sweet Cider, Empire Beers and Owera wine. 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!
