We’re excited to announce our sponsorship as a featured partner for the 2017 Wrenegade Sports Farm to Fork Fondo. What is a “Fondo” you ask? The Farm to Fork Fondo is an organized bicycle ride where you get to choose the distance best for you and stop for chef-prepared bites at local farms along the way.
“A major goal of the Farm to Fork Fondo series is to provide meaningful opportunities for the cycling community to support and get to know the agricultural community. Maple Hill Creamery’s commitment to highlighting and creating new opportunities for their farm families, producing delicious healthy products, and educating the public on agriculture and the health benefits of grass-fed dairy, make this partnership a great fit,” said Farm to Fork Fondo founder Tyler Wren.
Each 2017 Farm to Fork Fondo event will have a Maple Hill Creamery pre-ride Fuel Up Station, featuring our Whole Milk Greek yogurt and Whole Milk Drinkable yogurt made from our 100% grass-fed cows from family farms in upstate New York. Our products will also be featured in the post-ride Finisher Tent recovery area, and in select menus for catered post-ride barbecues and pre-ride gourmet Meet the Farmers Dinners. We’ll be on hand at each event to talk about the health benefits of grass-fed dairy products, too.
“Maple Hill Creamery is thrilled to be partnering with the 2017 Farm to Fork Fondo Series,” said Tim Joseph, Founding Farmer and Chief Executive of Maple Hill Creamery. “The Farm to Fork Fondo events are a perfect intersection of Maple Hill’s mission and focus: the health and well-being of consumers and healthy farms and rural communities. Using the sport of cycling as a platform for “putting a spotlight” on family farms in the Northeast is a beautiful combination we are proud to support!”
In that spirit, Maple Hill Creamery challenges you to #RideOnGrass! Sign up for any event in the Farm to Fork Fondo 2017 series, and stay tuned for more opportunities to #RideOnGrass with Maple Hill Creamery and Farm to Fork Fondo.
