SALT Announces Second Bounty of the County, Celebrity Guests

Written By Editor on 5/14/14 | 5/14/14


Schoharie Area Long Term Recovery (SALT) has announced the second annual "Bounty of the County" event set for June 28 and 29 as the organization invites friends and neighbors to celebrate the fertility and productivity of the county with special local celebrity guests. 

The flood recovery organization issued the following press release this morning, detailing the day by day events and special guests, who will join with everyone present to celebrate the bounty of Schoharie County's beauty and labor as move toward a stronger future:
On Saturday night, mingle over cocktails at the historic Schoharie Covered Bridge with The Fabulous Beekman Boys, Josh and Brent - accidental goat farmers, entrepreneurs, and stars of TV’s The Fabulous Beekman Boys, who are responsible for reintroducing the word mercantile into our vocabulary and introducing countless people to the beauty and bounty of Schoharie County. 
The cocktail hour, beginning at 5:30 p.m., will also feature samples of Schoharie- produced libations from Green Wolf Brewing Company, a nano-brewery new to Middleburgh; Kymar Winery and Distillery of Charlottesville; and Hummingbird Hills Winery of Fultonville. 
Stay for a mouth-watering (and belly-busting!) four-course dinner prepared by Chef Brisson beginning at 7 p.m. at the Carrot Barn.  Brisson who normally supervises a staff of 120 as Executive Chef at renowned steak house, Carnevino in Las Vegas, was featured on the TV show "Chopped" in 2013. All dishes on the menu feature produce donated by local farmers, and virtually everything our guests eat will have been produced here.  For a full list of participating farms visit SALTRecovery.org/BOCFarms. 
Come back to Schoharie on Sunday, when, beginning at 10 a.m., a country brunch kicks off Bounty of the County’s farmers and artisans market, to be held on the lawn of historic Lasell Hall. Visit SALTRecovery.org/BOCMarket for more information. 
SALT, the lead agency in coordinating flood recovery efforts in the Schoharie Creek Basin and surrounding areas, will be hosting the two-day event. Besides raising vitally-needed funds for individuals and families still in need, Bounty of the County will showcase the recovery of this picturesque and historic area. 
To date, SALT has raised over $1.1 million dollars to assist in recovery efforts, but returning to a state of normalcy from this history-making natural disaster still requires considerable support. "We really need funds to keep the effort moving ahead, as we are supported primarily by private donations," reports SALT Executive Director, Sarah Goodrich. 
Seating for this exclusive, gourmet dinner is limited. To purchase tickets and for event details, please visit SALTRecovery.org/BOC. 
Schoharie Area Long Term generates synergy through multi-sector partnerships to advance disaster recovery for families and communities, fostering resilience and sustainability in the Schoharie Creek basin and surrounding areas.
