Our butchers may have hipster groupies, but upstate farmers get a sexy (not really!) calendar. “Honoring the Hands,” an organization that advocates for farmworkers’ health care, is selling a hot 2009 calendar featuring Hudson Valley purveyors, cheesemakers, and chefs, paired with lofty quotes about food (“The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed, will set off a revolution.” Paul Cézanne). For a $25 donation, Dan Barber can be your Mr. October.
