The Hudson Valley Farm Hub will be the focus of attention at the June 26th Ulster County Regional Chamber of Commerce breakfast meeting, scheduled for 7:30 to 9 a.m. at the Wiltwyck Golf Club, 404 Steward Lane, Kingston.
Over the past three years, the Chamber’s June breakfast meeting has grown into a Community Breakfast, a celebration of the community, with the chamber also recognizing the accomplishments of outstanding local students and student-athletes.
The Community Breakfast is open to all businesses and members of the community, who will have a chance to celebrate a significant new initiative revolving around the former Gill Farms in Hurley. Guest speakers Brooke Pickering-Cole and John Gill will discuss the Local Economies Project (LEP) and its recently established Farm Hub, which is being developed on 1,255 acres of prime farmland stretching north-south from Kingston to Marbletown along an historic corridor known as the Hurley Flats.
