Heritage Showcase coming soon
Be sure to check out the regional exposition of local crafts, culture, produce, and history occurring in Thurman next weekend.
The Wilderness Heritage Corridor Showcase is scheduled for from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday July 27 at the Thurman rail station, located on Rte. 418 a few miles out of Warrensburg. There is sure to be something for everybody at this premier event.
Charlie and Michelle Wallace from Hidden Hollow Maple Farm will be present with delicious maple products.
Michelle and Don Whitefield from Whitefields Farm will be there with garden-fresh vegetables, fresh eggs, and meats from a certified slaughterhouse.
Lorraine Lambiase and Sheila Flanagan from Nettle Meadow Farm both have a great love of animals and of artisan cheese. So it was a natural fit when they founded the farm which is now the home of over 300 goats, several dozen sheep and a variety of farm sanctuary animals.
Their remarkable recipes and meticulous procedures in nurturing their carefully crafted gourmet cheeses have earned them an enviable national reputation.
Also featured at the Heritage Showcase will be acoustic music by two leading Adirondack singer-songwriters, dowsing demonstrations, jewelry making, presentations by history re-enactors, artwork for sale, and spinning demonstrations.
We hear that more than 40 businesses signed up for this first-ever event.
Avoid ticks & Lyme Disease!
We are in the height of deer tick season and the moist weather we have been enduring in the Adirondacks is a perfect breeding ground for them. Ticks seem to multiply more rapidly in moist weather. Remember when you to go outdoors to wear protective clothing, such as long pants and shirts and tucking your pants into your socks and the use of DEET has been known to repel the ticks, which commonly carry Lyme Disease and dozens of other bacteria which can cause serious, debilitating infections.
