"The first leg of the Mohawk Trail Bikeway, a 5.5 mile section constructed on the abandoned New York Central Railroad bed, stretches along the Mohawk River westward from the Town Park to the Niskayuna town line. Locally, bicycling enthusiasts can travel eastward along the Mohawk River from the Town of Niskayuna, through Colonie, Cohoes, and Watervliet, and along the Hudson River to the Corning Preserve in the City of Albany.Historically, Colonie's Bike Path is the old right-of-way of the former Troy-Schenectady Rail-road. It was primarily a passenger line but was also a hauler of freight, such as straw, ice, and sugar beets from nearby farms. Just beyond the Niskayuna Town Line, about .3 of a mile, is the old Railroad Station which the Shakers helped to build so they could ship their brooms, seeds, canned goods and agricultural products across the country. Today, the path is used every season by joggers, bikers, walkers, skaters, birders, photographers, and nature lovers." Mohawk-Hudson Bike Path | Albany  website and more . . .

By making an order and financial commitment to a farm, you ensure that the farmer has an income to use to in the day-to-day operation of the farm, and you receive a share of the harvest. By having advance orders, the farm knows how much to raise, and hopefully, keep down some of the costs of production by working efficiently. Heather Ridge Farm | Albany  website and more . . .
