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.
Fields and Greenhouses
Amber is a New England girl, born and raised. She’s been cooking for almost as long as she can remember and has loved food for just as long. She is a registered dietitian, a trained chef, and an aspiring farmer. After completing her undergraduate degree she was accepted by Rush University Medical Center in Chicago to study clinical dietetics and completed her dietetic internship. Although the graduate program was clinically focused, whenever possible she chose projects that allowed her to work in the local community. Her thesis research analyzed the relationship between household food availability and socioeconomic status. In 2016, she earned her Master’s Degree in Clinical Dietetics and became a registered dietitian.
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.
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.
