Mike talks Ramps with NYTimes

Written by

RampsSo you hear about our Ramp Festival and you see them on all those spring menus…. you might see them in the farmer’s market, but chances are chefs have already spoken for any and all ramps that could have made it to your markets. Our Farmer Mike knows more about farming and the condition of seeds, harvesting and land than anyone I know, so his input was valuable to the Times article.

Read it here!

“Mike Kokas, an owner of Paisley Farm in Columbia County, has foraged for ramps on his property since he recognized them from a picture in Saveur magazine 16 years ago. He said he trains his workers to harvest only older plants grown into small clumps connected by a rhizome, or an underground stem.”


Eater even picked up on this sad trend that ramps might be over-harvested….though Mike is conscious of the ramp and how it grows, and he continues to practice sustainable methods of harvesting ramps.
