A New Place To Shop - Stone House Farm & Market

A few weeks ago I linked to a story, on the Cobble Hill facebook pageabout a young man starting his own poultry business.  The young man's name is Sam Reed.  Sam created a video titled The Fight Against The Factory Farm, is 15 years old and is already an entrepreneur.

We met when we had made the decision the mean girls would no longer rule the coop.  Sam is the young man who processed them for us.

In addition to processing meat birds for others, Sam raises chickens for both eggs and meat, ducks for eggs and meat, and turkeys for meat in the fall.  Since the girls we had processed were so small, we bought a few of his whole chickens and I can tell you first hand, they are excellent!

He is an extremely nice young man who has a market at his farm, open every Saturday 
from 9a- noon.

He is currently selling:  free-range eggs, whole pastured chickens, chicken grill packs, livers for pate, pastured duck, maple syrup, and fresh, organic produce.

His brother owns/runs an organic vegetable farm, Tangleroot Farm, which also offers a CSA.

If you are in the upstate NY area and are looking for a nice family farm to support with your dollars, please stop by the Stone House Farm & Market.  His address is:  136 Parkhurst Road in Gansevoort

I am so glad to see that young people are going back to natural things. They are our future to better food. My husband's family lives in Saratoga and some still live in Middle Grove. So I have family in your neck of the woods. I love it there and wish we could get there more often.

It's so nice to see a young person interested in where his food comes from! What a great resource for your area.

I LOVE seeing young people who are driven to do what they love and aren't afraid to take things head on! Much luck to him!

What an enterprising young man. If we lived closer, we'd support him. Thanks for getting the word out!
