Alisha Albinder grew up on an apple orchard in the heart of the Hudson Valley so local food has always been a huge part of her life. Her family has been rooted (quite literally) in the area for 4 generations growing, packing & selling the highest quality apples. She currently works with her family at Hudson River Fruit Distributors, a local business that sells a majority of the apples grown in the Hudson Valley. Her love for growing and supplying local food has inspired her newest project Heritage Food + Drink. Being able to integrate her love for working with local farmers and distributing local food through a new avenue is very exciting. From farm to supermarket or farm to table, she is passionate about sharing the beauty and bounty of the Hudson Valley.
