About Fable

 

 

Tom
Father / Film Producer / Farmer

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, Westchester Growers Alliance Board Member, and Green Ossining Sustainability Partnership Honoree.

Julian
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 the 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.

Mary
Farm Programming

Mary​ spent many happy years as a social worker and department director at Green Chimneys Farm and Residential Treatment Center where the healing power of animals and nature is used to help children grow. She has directed projects at several residential treatment centers for children and launched garden programs at two local elementary schools. Mary is thrilled to be a part of the fantastic team and mission of Fable, where all good things are rolled into one!

Kalle
Assistant Market Manager

Kalle ​​joined our Dobbs Ferry CSA and fell in love with the hyper-local, fresh-tasting produce that she and her family received (especially the curly kale!) And just as Peak Season hit we needed help in our Market and she came to the rescue. From sprucing up the Market to feeding our free-ranging barn hens, she’s been an integral part of our team and we’re excited to see her grow and continue to enhance our market and offerings.

Bill
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 healthy, local, and organic produce. After working in the city for several years Bill craved 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.
