Celebrate National Donut Day at These Dutchess Favorites
Turns out National Donut comes around twice a year – the first Friday of June and November 5th. But let’s be real, it doesn’t need to be a national holiday to enjoy a donut, and here in Dutchess we have a variety of options to choose from when on the hunt for the best donut. We’re giving you a roundup of some of our favorites!

Fishkill Farms – Hopewell Junction
Fall is always a great time of year for a trip to the farm. Fishkill Farms offers pick-your-own fruits and vegetables, hard cider tasting, and best of all, the homemade cider donuts! Donuts are made daily and are often sold until they sell out, with options of old fashioned or cinnamon sugar. The line is always worth the wait, and if you’re lucky you’ll end up with a piping hot donut right out of the fryer – the best!
Barton Orchards – Poughquag
Cider donuts truly are a fall treat, but lucky for us, Barton Orchards serves them year-round! Winner of Hudson Valley Magazine’s Best Cider Doughnuts of 2016, Barton Orchard, you know they’re good! This year, they even stepped up their game by announcing their new Cider Donut Sundaes. Yup, you heard that right. Head to the orchards to try one for yourself!
Tomi’s Bites – Hopewell Junction
When donuts are as small as the miniature ones at Tomi’s – it’s okay to pop two or more in your mouth in one sitting, right? This bakery and café offers a range of baked goods like bagels and breads, but the buzz is on about their mini donuts, which you can top with assorted glazes; toppings like chocolate chips, toasted coconut, and slivered almonds; and drizzles to create countless combinations.
Adam’s Fairacre Farms – Wappingers Falls & Poughkeepsie
We know what you may be thinking – donuts at a grocery store? But Adam’s is so much more than a grocery store. Their aisles are filled with locally sourced produce, baked goods, speciality products and more. Maybe you’ve found yourself on Route 9 with a cider donut craving and not a farm in sight. Don’t worry, swing into Adam’s in Wappingers for some of their store made cider donuts.
