MILLING IN MILLERTON

On a chilly mid-December eve, Millerton, Millbrook, and Amenia residents and business owners warmed themselves with whiskey, coffee, tea, and organic nibbles at Irving Farm Coffee Roasters for our final Chronogram Conversation of the year. Luminary's networking and community discussion series provided the venue to discuss what good growth looks like in Eastern Dutchess County—and attendees had plenty to say.

Our Conversations series is also a setting for regional sponsors to showcase their wares. Harney & Sons Tea presented a sampling of holiday-inspired teas. Our venue host, Irving Farm, poured single-sourced drip coffee. McEnroe Organic Farms served a selection of house-cured meats, pate, beef tartare, and cheeses. Hillrock Distillery poured samples of their bourbon, rye, and single-malt whiskeys.

Agrisculpture once again provided custom-built stools for our panelists, made from reclaimed tractor parts.

The panel discussion began with Jenny Hansell (North East Community Center), Mimi Ramos (Harney Real Estate and cofounder of the Spring for Sound music festival), and Gregg Osofsky (Watershed Center) who discussed their views on what makes Millerton singular, as well as some challenges facing the community, foremost among them youth employment and activities, equitable development, and aging village infrastructure. Brian K. Mahoney moderated the panel.
