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 firstname.lastname@example.org.

One of the particular joys of this spring has been the return of visitors. Over the past month a steady flow of grandparents has passed through the farm, and as I write this my friend Mark has come to stay for a while. We all have our peculiarities, and one of Mark’s is that he...
Website Epicurious recently announced that it will no longer be publishing recipes featuring beef. The statement itself is so milquetoast that, despite my best efforts, I have not been able to summon much in the way of righteous indignation. But I am concerned about the ignorance it represents. The exclusive justification for the move is environmental. In...
