This fall, getaway to the Adirondack Olympic Village of Lake Placid and enjoy an all-inclusive Farm Tour Weekend with the Golden Arrow Lakeside Resort and Chef David Hunt of Generations Restaurant.
On September 7-9, the Golden Arrow, Lake Placid’s only “green” hotel and the only U.S. resort to receive the Audubon Society’s 5 Green Leaf Eco Rating for Hotels, is hosting a Fall Farm Tour Weekend, featuring:
A welcome reception on Friday evening with farm fresh hors d’oeuvres and beverages.
On Saturday, guests can attend a brief discussion on the history of local farms and learn about available opportunities to join a Community Supported Agriculture organization (CSA) and buy local, which will be followed by tours of Edgley Bison Farm, Tucker Farms, and Atlas Hoofed It Farm.
