Pierson's Farm & Greenhouse
From the Farmer: Our homestead was recognized as a bi-centennial farm by the New York State Ag. Society in 2001, and is one of the oldest farms in Orange County. My wife and I, together with our eighth generation children, Lorna, Rachel, Carolyn, and Rita, live and work solely on the farm. The farm originally consisted of around 1000 acres, but due to family divisions, our current farm is much smaller, less then 300 acres. All of my ancestors were dairy farmers until the late 1970s, when my father, Stephen, sold the dairy herd. He then bought two-hundred sheep and started to raise them for their wool and meat. Unexpectedly, in 1995, my father passed away from cancer. He left me with three hundred sheep. As time went on, sheep were sold, cattle were brought in. I gradually sold all sheep and kept the cattle. Today, along with raising natural grass fed beef, pasture raised broiler chickens and pork. We also produce free range brown eggs. We raise dairy replacement heifers with our girls, grow and sell flowers from our greenhouses, have a pick-your-own pumpkin harvest in October, and sell fresh cut and cut your own Christmas trees in December. My wife Jackie has a gift shop in the old wagon house that has been refurbished. We are opened seasonally, as we shut down most activity in the winter months to take a little break from the weather. We are available for meat purchases including hamburger and egg throughout the year by appointment--call 845 386 1882 to set a two hour window.
Products: grass-fed beef, pasture-raised broiler chickens, pork, free-range brown eggs, flowers, pumpkins, raw honey, maple syrup, christmas trees, wreaths, roping, holiday decorations, grave blankets.
