Chefs from Across Country Prepare Fire Pits Before Pitney Farm Feast

From The Saratogian — Chefs from all over the United States prepared their fire pits Monday in anticipation for Tuesday night’s Fire Feast on the Farm.

All proceeds of the event go to furthering Pitney Meadows’ educational mission, supporting the high tunnel, establishment of a Children’s Garden and Greenhouse and development of trails on the 166-acre property, which PMCF acquired last December from the Pitney family with a $1.13 million contribution from the City of Saratoga Springs’ Open Space Fund.

Michael Lapi, who teaches farm to table management at SUNY Cobleskill, owned a restaurant for six years that sourced everything from local farms. He’s helping to prepare beef ribs from Mack Brook Farm in Argyle.

“For me, this is a breakthrough in the food scene in this area,” he said.
