Life in the Valley – Coronavirus Day 12

Some of the FOBC Members who are staying safe in locations other than the Beaverkill Valley have asked about life up here, as we all accept the realities of the pandemic and the social distancing protocols our Governor has advised.

So a few notes …. being that its still not springtime yet, Roscoe, Livingston Manor and Lew Beach remain in their usual off-season melancholy. And it doesn’t feel like that is going to change anytime soon. Restaurants are closed to eat-in customers, with some of them staying open on shorter hours to offer “curbside” pick-ups. Northern Farmhouse, Raimondos, Brandenberg Bakery, Katskeller, Main Street Farm, the Cabin, the DeBruce and the Roscoe Diner, among them. Pecks and the Liberty Shop Rite have depleted shelves, but still enough inventory to provide home cooking supplies for everyone in the area. The Catskill Food Hub and Fare Haven are still providing local farm products to anyone who is willing to drive to the Manor for pick-up on their porch Essential services remain open, but quiet – the Post Offices, Manor Motors, and the highway exit service stations.

Some photos below, we’ll come back in a week with further updates. So til then – stay home and stay safe!

Same great food – just you don’t get to chat with Bob.
Business as usual.
You have to stay flexible at the local supermarkets.
Some adjustments have been made.
