Food Producers

Gloversville is surrounded by some of the richest farmland in the country. The soils in the Mohawk Valley and neighboring counties was once the breadbasket of the country and remains a vital resource for the growing local-food movement.

Within Fulton County itself, we are home to small farmers and food producers including Stump City Brewing, Devil Dave’s, EMVI Chocolates and larger food manufacturers such as Fage Yogurt, Espuna Tapas and Euphrates Cheese.

If you skip down to Montgomery County, small farmers and artisan food producers such as Danascara Cheese, Free Bird Farm, Lovin’ Mama Farm, Palatine Cheese (to name a few) dot the landscape on either side of the Mohawk River. To the east sits Washington County and its rich and deep food culture and to the west Herkimer County’s growing food movement plays host to amazing garlic farms, maple producers and more. One more thing: we are surrounded by dairy farms – large and small, organic and conventional – all run with quality and care.

Simply put, Gloversville is at the center of a growing local-food movement.
