Farm and Food Politics: Senator Kirsten Gillibrand Returns to Quail Hill Farm Next Week

Many Edible readers joined us last August when Senator Kirsten Gillibrand told the rapt (and packed) barn at Quail Hill Farm why she’d like to see more veterans getting into the food business, how New York can help reform the Farm Bill and what she loves about CSAs. We are pleased to announce that the Senator is returning next Sunday to meet and greet locals, and give us an update on farm and food politics as the 2012 Farm Bill debate races to a close. Please join us from 9-10:30 a.m., Sunday, August 26, at Quail Hill Farm (Old Stone Highway and Deep Lane in Amagansett). Coffee and refreshments, including Flying Pig Farm bacon, Leigh’s famous cobbler, Blue Duck Bakery bread, and local fruit salad, will be served. RSVP by calling Emily Holsapple at 212.209.3880 or by emailing
