Wrenegade Sports is excited to announce that New York-based dairy processor Maple Hill Creamery has signed on as a Featured Partner of the 2017 Farm to Fork Fondo series.
“A major goal of the Farm to Fork Fondo series is to provide meaningful opportunities for the cycling community to support and get to know the agricultural community. Maple Hill Creamery's commitment to highlighting and creating new opportunities for their farm families, producing delicious healthy products, and educating the public on agriculture and the health benefits of grass-fed dairy, make this partnership a great fit," said Farm to Fork Fondo Series founder Tyler Wren.
The 2017 sponsorship will include Maple Hill Creamery pre-ride Fuel Up Stations at each Farm to Fork Fondo event, featuring Greek yogurt and drinkable yogurt products. Maple Hill Creamery products will also be featured in the post-ride Finisher Tent recovery area, and in select menus for catered post-ride barbecues and pre-ride gourmet Meet the Farmers Dinners that spotlight local farmers. Recipes incorporating Maple Hill Creamery products and educational content on the health benefits of grass-fed dairy products will be published throughout the year in the Lifestyle section of FarmForkFondo.com.
“Maple Hill Creamery is thrilled to be partnering with Tyler Wren and the 2017 Farm to Fork Fondo Series," said Tim Joseph, Founding Farmer and Chief Executive of Maple Hill Creamery. "The Farm to Fork Fondo events are a perfect intersection of Maple Hill’s mission and focus: the health and well-being of consumers and healthy farms and rural communities. Using the sport of cycling as a platform for “putting a spotlight” on family farms in the Northeast is a beautiful combination we are proud to support!”
ABOUT MAPLE HILL CREAMERY
Maple Hill Creamery is a farm-family owned dairy manufacturer founded in 2009, and is widely recognized as the preeminent leader in the emerging 100% grass-fed dairy category. They are the first dairy brand to receive the Pennsylvania Certified Organic 100% Grassfed Certification. Since day one, Maple Hill has stood by their conviction that 100% grass-fed organic dairy farming is better for everyone from cows to consumers. 100% grass-fed dairy farming produces the highest quality milk, supports the healthiest lifestyle for cows, improves the fertility of grazing land, and allows farmers to prosper. The Maple Hill Creamery Milkshed now numbers over 100 small farms, and will continue to transition New York State dairy farms to 100% grass-fed organic in 2017. Maple Hill Creamery products are available nationwide in over 6,000 retailers, including many specialty and independent retailers.
