Indian Ladder Farms: Vote for the best cider donuts

Vote for fellow Cornell alum Pete Ten Eyck’s donuts (well, the donuts from his Indian Ladder Farms!) in the Times Union 2013 poll. Vote here: http://blog.timesunion.com/recipebox/

Pete says:

I feel we have the best product (no trans fats used, contains cider make on the farm from our own handpicked apples, no drops) but that’s beside the point. Clearly this year, the contest is not about the best doughnut. No one has sampled 16 different doughnuts from the Capital District and identified the best one.

The formal voting has morphed into vote on which farm is most admired and and appreciated by the community and selfishly I would like Indian Ladder to make as strong showing as possible in our 98th year of business and the 10th anniversary of the retirement of the development right on the farm.

[Our Cornell community] has had a part, large or small in our progress to date and if you feel a small statement in our favor is in order please take the time to cast a vote at the site.
