Tom is a native of Westchester County, New York. While making an effort to eat healthier, he began to notice that fresh, locally-grown produce was often not available in nearby grocery stores. He also found that many of the items that were available contained harmful ingredients or pesticides. With this in mind Tom created Fable: From Farm to Table to provide local residents, restaurants, and grocery stores with a fresh, healthy, and locally grown produce.
Tom enjoys growing new and exotic species of plants. When he’s not planting culinary herbs or browsing through the latest seed catalog, one can find him kayaking on the Hudson River, hiking in the Catskills, or venturing on a road trip. In 2012 Tom completed his mission of traveling to all 50 states, including a cross country road trip from New York to Alaska. These travels have led Tom to have a deeper appreciation for the environment and desire to help protect it.
Cheryl has been maintaining Fable’s hives since May 2016. She has studied at Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture and Hilltop Hanover Farm, learning exactly what bees in southern New York require. When Cheryl isn’t at Fable you can find her riding her bike, gardening at home, or eating at one of Westchester’s many farm-to-table restaurants.
