TASTE NY comes to the Hudson Valley

My good friend Todd Erling, whose daughter Sophia is my biggest fan…
Working tirelessly to keep farming viable and fresh food to our friends
and neighbors near and far and for our families.
Thank you Todd!

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo visited the Todd Hill rest area on The Taconic State Parkway on June 9, 2014. They brought an abandoned building near the La Grange exit back to life, filled it with local products and produce. More then half of the products in the store come right from our Hudson Valley Bounty members. How fantastic!

A little history lesson, The Taconic was envisioned by Franklin D. Roosevelt to create a road to open the region, for access through this part of New York. It was designed to offer views of the Catskills, Taconic, and Hudson Highlands, to not only share the glories of our landscape but to boost tourism and create opportunities. Rolling hills, sharp turns, winding up and up – it’s an exciting and beautiful ride! Plan your summer vacation, there is a lot to be seen of The Hudson Valley region.

Please read on about Taste NY – and if you are in the New York region get ready to see these stores on your travels! Currently you can visit a LaGuardia Airport location, stop on the NYS Thruway (New Baltimore exit), or while passing through Grand Central Terminal later this summer.

Thank you,

– I recommend watching Hyde Park on Hudson with Bill Murray if you are interested in FDR/the area. Beautifully done! 🙂

I loved watching the video of New York, fascinating!
Also, love a red barn and seeing cattle grazing in a pasture, something about that brings me comfort.

I just wanted to thank Nancy for that fantastic Corn Chowder recipe–I made it today and it was soooooooo
good. I followed the directions exactly and joila–delicious soup. I put a little grated cheddar on top when I served it and it is the best soup I have ever had, homemade or otherwise. I look forward to watching more of “Farmhouse Rules”.

Hi Nancy,

I’m originally from Copake, also. I still remember when I visited Grammie Carl’s when I was little and you were there. We had a fun day. It’s so nice that you include some of her recipes in the show.I love your show. It brings back nice memories.
