An array of vegetables from Juniper Hill Farm of Wadhams is displayed during summer 2012 at a farmers' market. Juniper Hill has teamed up with Warrensburgh Beautification to bring their farm-fresh, nnaturally grown produce and other food items on a weekly basis into Warren County.

A century ago, family farms were common throughout the Adirondacks, providing local food to area residents — but industrialized farming took its place in the mid-1900s. But now, after a 70-year absence, small farms in the Adirondacks are on the rebound. One milestone in this trend is that fresh, naturally-grown vegetables, meat, eggs and yogurt — all produced locally in the Adirondacks — will be available this summer in Warrensburg as well as North Creek and Glens Falls due to a new Farm Share program.
Fresh, non-GMO, pesticide-free locally grown food is now available at new distribution points in Warren County — including North Creek, Warrensburg and Glens Falls — through the Farm Share program.
