Our New York Farm Delivers to Your Home
100% Grass Finished, Grass Fed Beef and Lamb ~ Pastured Organic Chicken and Pastured Pork
Welcome to the farm!
My name is Garth (I'm the tall one without a beard). I started Cairncrest Farm with my wife Alanna, my brother Ed, and my sister-in-law Normandy. Along the way we've added four kids, three cats, and one dog. We are enthusiastically committed to creating and sharing real, nourishing food. Whether it's 100% grass finished, grass fed beef, certified organic chicken, or gifts from local artisans, everything we sell is a representation of our belief in the beauty and joy that can be found in a healthy farm ecosystem.
There's lots to say about all this. You can keep scrolling for more about the farm, or look in the menu for info about a particular topic. If you have a question you don't see the answer to you can call me at (267) 625-0542, or email Alanna at email@example.com.

One theme of this experiment is the difference between the food necessary to survive and the food necessary for comfort and enjoyment. The biggest issue is not any particular food item that I have access to, save turnips, but a longing for what I can eat. A good but bland diet of root root veggies...
The best (alright, the only) dietary change of the past couple weeks is that the hens have finally started consistently laying. I got them early enough last summer that they should have been in full swing by December. But whether or not chickens lay is largely determined by the amount of light they are exposed...
