Bellefield is strongly positioned to be highly visible in the marketplace as not only a national and international tourism destination, but also as a key regional center for shopping, dining, and weekend getaways. Tourism is the county’s second largest industry, sustaining more than 8,750 full-time equivalent jobs and generating a payroll of $245 million. By providing an enticing and memorable “culinary tourism” destination that celebrates people coming together over fine food and wine, Bellefield will have an enormous economic impact on Hyde Park, Dutchess County, and the state of New York.
