Here at EscapeMaker, we are on a mission to connect all you adventurous, curious, farm- and food-loving travelers to unique local experiences. We’re here to open your eyes to the herculean effort that goes into getting those fresh apples into your farmers market tote, or crafting that crisp, hoppy pint of beer in your hand. In our new “Escape to the Maker” series, we hope you’ll take time to learn a little bit more about the producers and craftspeople that are helping to make this region so special. And even more, we hope you’ll be inspired to take a day trip or weekend getaway to visit these local treasures in person. Happy traveling!
