We raise heritage-breed pigs here on the farm. Right now, we have York-Duroc crosses, Tamworths and some Berkshires. These breeds are well suited to pasture and have plenty of acreage to romp, roam, and root for forage. They are supplemented with non-GMO (transitioning to organic) pig feed from Stone House Farm in Hudson, NY.
Our cows are a varied bunch: at any given time, we have some Charolais, black angus, and hereford cows. Our cows are 100% grass fed. We do not supplement with grain, corn, or anything other than our own hay (which we cut from pristine pastures....never cleared with Round Up, as is a common practice) and a mineral lick.
Occasionally, we'll offer whole chicken roasters that we have raised here on the farm. These also sell out quickly, so if you'd like to reserve one, please send us a note.
Our flock of 200+ hens are given free range of the farm. They eat grass, bugs, and a small amount of non-GMO (transitioning to organic) grain from Stone House Farm in Hudson, NY. We stock the eggs in our farm stand and the eggs always sell within a day or two. This is about as fresh from the chicken as it gets!
On occasion, we'll also carry duck eggs but be forewarned...they sell out almost immediately!
PLEASE READ: As of September 2017, we have decided to close down our retail operation at the farm stand. You can still order whole animals from us (whole or half side of beef; whole or half hog) but we will no longer be selling meat by the cut or eggs or any of the other items that we have sold in the past.
Please keep in mind, if you'd like to order a whole or half cow, we will require the order to be placed by March each year, with an anticipated slaughter date in October or November of that year. For pigs, we request (but do not always require) 1-2 month's notice.
Thanks for your understanding!

From late spring through fall, we grow a variety of vegetables. We always choose non-GMO seeds and never, ever use any sort of chemical pesticide, herbicide, or fertilizer. Weeds and bugs are removed by hand. You can find our fruits and veggies, harvested by hand at the peak of freshness, in our farm stand throughout the growing season.
