We celebrate our hardworking dairy farmers not just on National Farmers Day, but each and every day of the year!

To celebrate National Farmers Day, which is observed on October 12th, we bring you our Chef Meets Farm special, featuring Emmy award-winning culinary producer and chef, Anthony Contrino, and farmer Nate Chittenden of Dutch Hollow Farm. What happens when a city chef travels to a farm to cook outside of his element? Watch to find out!

National Farmers Day is observed annually on October 12th to honor and pay tribute to farmers, who have dedicated their lives to feed our nation. Their contributions range from providing a sustainable and secure food supply to providing jobs and stimulating our economy.

At American Dairy Association North East, we represent nearly 9,000 dairy farmers throughout the northeast. Dairy farmers have an eye on the future of our shared resources and are committed to feeding communities and giving back.

A special message for our hard-working dairy farmers from Olympian and dairy farmer, Elle St. Pierre.

Established in 1976, Dutch Hollow Farm is owned and operated by the Chittenden family in Schodack Landing, NY.
