Heather Ridge Farm is a working farm with a farm store and café! We’re located in the Catskill Mountains, in upstate New York. The Heather Ridge Farm Store and outdoor/indoor Bees Knees Café are open Saturday and Sunday for lunch and brunch all year, as well as Thursdays and Fridays in the summer.
We offer retail cuts of pork, beef, lamb, goat, chicken, duck, guinea, geese, and turkey at our farm store, all grown here on the farm. Our lamb and goat meats are certified Animal Welfare Approved Grassfed, and the heritage breed pastured pork and our eggs from pastured poultry are also Animal Welfare Approved. Join our Meat and Poultry CSA, for monthly pick up here or to be shipped within a one-day UPS region.
We make our own artisan sausages, patés, corned beef, smoked bacon, mustards, root beer syrup, and many other specialty products. Retail cuts are offered fresh in season and frozen the rest of the year from our farm store, and offered in expertly prepared dishes at our café. Sides of meat also available by reservation.
All our animals and poultry are lovingly raised in small groups on pasture in the fresh air with mountain spring water. All are guarded by diligent llamas. The cattle, goats and lambs are entirely grass fed, and the pigs, chickens and turkeys have all the fresh grass they want as well as being supplemented with a natural grain mix we have custom-made to order. Our animals receive no antibiotics, no hormones, no animal by-products in their feed and there are no chemical fertilizers used on the pastures. We use organic methods, but are not certified organic.
We schedule farm tours to share our farming methods, and for you to enjoy seeing our animals and scenic mountain farm.
