ur agricultural roots run deep in Columbia County. Family farms have been growing heirloom vegetable strains for generations, and young pioneers open new CSA farms year after year. Stop by our farm stands and markets, where the growers bring their just-picked produce and fine crafted products. Indulge your senses in a taste and leave with the makings of a feast and tips on how to fix it. It’s all here: extraordinary diner fare, ethnic treats that have won national raves and pizza as an art form. Coffee shops where fresh-brewed excellence is served with a side of local insider tips. Fragrant bakeries employing strict European standards. Don’t forget chocolatiers, pub cuisine and mouthwatering steaks. Vegan, casual, or candlelit—name your mood, we’ve got the food—from falafel to molecular gastronomy and everywhere in-between. We’ll quench your thirst with artisanal beverages. Our distilleries, brewery and wineries welcome you to tour, taste and celebrate. Columbia County—where farm-to-table cuisine is just how it’s done.

Over a late night campfire in 2009, the dream of Hudson Valley Distillers, LLC was born.

Housed in a 100 year old barn, the distillery centerpiece is a 60 gallon hybrid pot still, which probably makes them the Hudson Valley’s smallest farm distillery. You’ll be welcomed by a member of the family and experience creative spirits found nowhere else. Tours and tastings Friday through Sunday 1-6. Call or email for weekday availability. 1727 Rt 9, Germantown, 537-6820 www.hudsonvalleydistillers.com
