Tom founded Fable because he wanted a source of healthy, nutrient-rich food for his family that was free of harmful pesticides. He felt you shouldn’t have to go out to a restaurant to see beautiful pink watermelon radishes, or to taste delicious, nutty sunflower shoots that pack some crunch. With this in mind he created Fable to provide local residents, restaurants, and grocery stores with fresh, healthy, and locally grown produce. Tom is also a Producer for HBO, Friends of Muscoot Farm Board Member, Westchester Growers Alliance Board Member, and Green Ossining Sustainability Partnership Honoree.
Ben has worked across the field in the food industry within sales, distribution, logistics, and operations. He maintains a plant-based diet and enjoys working on the farm. He joined Fable in 2020 to help manage our Barnside Pickup during the COVID-19 Pandemic and we’re excited to have him oversee our Market’s reopening as well. His side hobbies include photography, pocket-billiards, and live music.
Kristen studied Equine Management at the University of New Hampshire and is versed in livestock management, animal nutrition, and foraging and weed identification. She’s worked as a farm hand in both New Hampshire and New York and we’re thrilled to have her on our team. Aside from helping out in our Market, Kristen oversees caring for our lovely goats and free-range chickens.
Field & Greenhouse Farmer
From New York to Northern California, Julian has an entrepreneurial spirit and a track record of taking on challenging projects. He has experience with transplanting, cloning, defoliation, and trimming plants. At previous farms he’s ensured that growth requirements of plants were met with proper lighting, soil quality, and pest management. We are excited to have him working with us at Fable after spending many years with our friends at Thompson’s Cider Mill.
Sales and Distribution
Bill joined Fable in the summer of 2019 and brought with him a wealth of knowledge and experience from prior positions in the food industry including Account Executive for Bimbo Bakeries as well as Area Sales Manager for Coca Cola in nearby Elmsford. He handles distribution for the farm as well as connecting with local restaurants and chefs to help promote the healthy, local, and organic produce. After working in the city for several years Bill craved the country life and moved to Connecticut. He is an avid vegetable gardener and now practices square foot gardening in raised beds. His interest in agriculture comes from his Grandfather who was originally from a farm in Illinois. Photo coming soon.
