Local Fruit Farms

Our favorite organic/low-spray, pick-your-own fruit farms in the Hudson Valley region of New York.

Beautiful, organic strawberries and raspberries.
//Ancram, NY
Vegetables, fruits and flowers. Pick-your-own and farmstand. They also have a stand at Brooklyn's McCarren Park Farmer’s Market.
//North Fork, Long Island
Apples, peaches, cherries!
//Hopewell Junction, NY
Raspberries and tomatoes.
//Franklin, NY
Cherries (sweet, sour or black), peaches and apples; plus a beautiful spot overlooking the Hudson River.
// Hudson, NY

*growing organic fruit in the NE is very hard, and therefore there are very few farms that do it, hence the inclusion of low-spray. We like supporting our local small farms, and encouraging them to keep growing delicious and creative fruit.

Tart Cherries: July 1-July 25
Blueberries: July 15-August 25
Summer Raspberries: July 15-August 15
Apples: Mid-July-Late October
Fall Raspberries: Sept 3-Oct 31 (or hard freeze)

Where to Buy

Our jam, jelly, marmalade, chutney and mustard are made in small batches using mostly local, seasonal ingredients. Therefore, not all our products are available year round. See our products page for more details.

We sell directly, by mail and at local markets. We participate in various holiday and seasonal markets on a selective schedule, so please check the “find us” section on the left to see where we will be this month.

Buy Jam at a Store

If  you’re local in the NYC area, we encourage you to purchase directly from us via our own bike delivery service, at one of the many markets where we sell, or from retailers like Green Grape Provisions in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, Lucy’s Whey in Chelsea Market, Manhattan, or any Whole Foods Market in New York City (look for it in the specialty food aisle). We try to be as eco-friendly and local-based as possible; buying local helps support our local stores and food producers,  and maintains a better carbon footprint.
