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.

This may just be the keystone to the home-grown food arch I'm living right now. I've grown a lot of produce in other years, but storage has always been less than optimal. Keeping crate upon crate of roots in the basement of the old farmhouse worked for a few months, but the conditions were not...
The picture above is bibimbap, or the closest I could come with the limited ingredients available to me. Real bibimbap would have rice as a base instead of rutabagas, and it would be served in a searing hot stone bowl. But these major differences actually bothered me less than the absence of sesame seeds and oil, soy...
