The Unbreakable Farmer

The Unbreakable Farmer

As we spoke to dozens of farming experts to create this issue, one name was repeatedly mentioned: Ana Zabirova. We were told that ‘she did it all.’ Naturally, we had to meet her for ourselves and find out what that really meant. So we ventured up to Unbroken Acres, her farm in Sullivan County, in search of this former Northern ...

Traveling with Kids

By Gia Miller Photography by Justin Negard  We’ve all heard the travel horror stories (and many of us have our own to share) – kids crying the entire fight, throwing tantrums in the middle of a museum, refusing to put their electronic device away for even just a few minutes, etc. But traveling with kids can be a good, perhaps ...

Antioch Church

In approximately 1887, Bedford’s African American community, who routinely congregated for services in their homes, registered as a religious corporation in the State of New York. Led by Reverend F. C. McGee, neighbors worked together over the next several years to build a place of worship. By 1894, the Antioch Missionary Baptist Church completed construction in Bedford Centre. Now, Antioch ...

Keep it Growing

Keep it Growing

Writing by Leslie Dock Artwork by Zoe Stevensy Tips for a consistent harvest Afew months ago, my brother asked me what farmers do during the winter.

Part of their Charm: The Blazer

Alice O’Leary Kerrigan has a theory: If she was in business school and received an assignment to develop a restaurant concept, The Blazer’s business model would fail. “If my plan was to use plastic tablecloths and paper placemats, have a two-page menu that should technically be one but the font is just really big, not offer dessert, be located in ...
