The 2017 Cherry Valley Folk Fest for Food

Good to Go’s hours will change a bit for the next three weeks as the Cherry Valley Folk Fest for Food is the next three Thursdays.

We’ll be open Friday through Monday, noon to 7 pm. We’ll be open for the next three Thursdays from 2 pm to 9 pm. We’ll be closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. This means we will be closed tomorrow, Tuesday, August 8, and then Tuesday, August 15, and then Tuesday, August 22.

The Folk Fest is August 10, 17, and 24. Each of those Thursdays, we’re open from 2 pm to 9 pm. We will return to our regular schedule on August 25.

The Folk Fest for Food is an annual, three-evening event to support The Daily Bread Food Pantry. Three concerts are held in downtown Cherry Valley (in the NBT Bank parking lot right across the street) the last three Thursday evenings of August, starting at 7 pm. The Folk Fest is hosted by Gravelyard Bluegrass and the Village and Town Boards of Cherry Valley, NY.

We always have vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options.

We’re Closed Tomorrow So Come and Get It

We’re closed tomorrow when we’d usually be open; we learned from the last blizzard that we’re all going to hibernate through this.

We’re going to help everyone stay safe during snowstorm Stella by not tempting you with anything delicious tomorrow. We’ll be open again on Friday, at noon. So… you’ll need to come in today to get your piece of Gluten-free Banana* Walnut* Cake made with oats* from a gluten-free facility. And yes, of course, it comes with Banana* Whipped Cream.

If you are out and about tomorrow and need something, just call ahead (607-264-5025) and we might be able to help out.

French Dipped Lamb Sandwich: A French-dipped, grass-fed, roasted, Nectar Hills Farm leg of lamb sandwich with fresh house mustard on a Heidelberg baguette, with Nectar Hills Farm Napa cabbage coleslaw.
Grass-fed Lamb Sandwich: A French-dipped, grass-fed, roasted leg of lamb* sandwich with fresh house mustard* on a Heidelberg baguette.

If you feel the need to eat something else delicious before this dessert, we still have Philippe’s-style, French-dipped, grass-fed, roasted leg of lamb sandwiches with organic house mustard on a Heidelberg baguette. See our takeout menu.

Good to Go is open noon to 7 pm, closed Wednesdays and Thursdays. If you have a large order, just call a few days ahead and we can make just about anything you want!

Good to Go Farm-to-Counter is a multi-member LLC. Equity shares are still available: you can own 0.1% of the LLC for $100. Good to Go wouldn’t exist without our local investors, especially those who crowdfunded our little takeout restaurant when it was just a dream. Find out more about owning part of our company on our get involved page.

Open All Week This Week

We will be open all week this week to help all you hungry people who discover The Coyote is closed until March.

We’ll be open our usually closed days–Wednesday and Thursday–from noon to 7 pm.  We will go back to our usual schedule starting Wednesday, March 1.

We hope this clears up any confusion you might feel when you see we’re open tomorrow and Thursday.

We’re offering, for the first time, one menu item only: Robin’s famous Eggs Benedict, on organic English muffins, with organic Amish eggs, organic veggies, Black Forest turkey ham, and, of course, Hollandaise sauce. All drinks, including smoothies and milkshakes, are still available, but the only food item on the menu will be the Eggs Benedict.

We will return to our regular noon to 6pm hours on Monday, September 26th, with our currently posted takeout menu.

We will be taking an extra day off this week by closing on Tuesday, September 27th, in addition to Wednesday, September 28th. We will go back to our regular takeout menu on Thursday, September 29th.

Good to Go is almost Good to Go in Cherry Valley, NY, between Cooperstown and Sharon Springs.

If all goes well, our organic and local takeout food restaurant will be open next week, in historic Cherry Valley New York, between Cooperstown and Sharon Springs.

We’re putting the finishing touches on everything now (although we will probably never actually be finished) and plan to open next week–gradually–starting Monday, August 8th.

We’ll have meatball subs made with organic, local, grass-fed, wagyu beef from Nectar Hills Farm, organic grass-fed beef bone broth (from the same young bull of wagyu beef), roast organic free-range chicken, organic & local garlic greens, organic pasta and grains,  organic & fair trade coffee and tea, organic lavender lemonade, and other assorted organic and local treats.

We’ll post our full takeout food menu as soon as we finalize it.

Organic and Local Takeout Food Doesn’t Happen By Magic

Thanks to our graphic designer Harriet Spear for the wonderful window sign, stickers, business cards, and all our other graphics. Thanks to photographer Mark Reinertson for his photograph of Nectar Hills Farm which now graces our front window and the top of this site. Thanks also to Derrick Marshfield for being a great all around handyman and construction advisor.

And finally, we thank all our crowd-funders who bought shares! We couldn’t have done it without you. Every share we sold took us one small step in the right direction.

Equity shares in the LLC are still available. Find out more on the get involved page. Shares are $100, represent 0.1% of the company, and will be repurchased over five years while you continue to get your share of the net profits every year until we’ve purchased them all back.
