WALDEN – Angry Orchard has been partnering with local chefs and complimentary purveyors for the past year, as a way to bring awareness to the many local farms and restaurants, and agriculture in the Hudson Valley area.

In this latest installment of the Farm to Orchard experience, Organic Hudson Valley Magazine organized a pairing between the Angry Orchard and Chef John Lekic; owner of Le’ Express restaurant in Poughkeepsie, and also the owner of the restaurant’s mobile asset, the Farmers and Chefs Food Truck.

In addition to the partnering of these two highly regarded sources in the Hudson Valley, Organic magazine owner, Laurie Szostak and Angry Orchard Facility Coordinator Jamie Corrao designed a sit down, three-course, family style dinner showcasing Sprout Creek Farm, Fishkill Farms, Dan Madura Farm’s and Wheatley Farm, as well as highlighting exclusive styles of Angry Orchard Hard Cider at the Walden location.

The Thursday evening event included a “build your own” smores dessert by the Angry Orchard fire pit, an after dinner Spanish cider with a unique spout,  and music by Vito Petroccitto.
