Hawthorne Valley farm is a diversified, Biodynamic farm in upstate New York. The farm spans 500 acres of woodlands and rolling hills, open fields and meadows, and flowing creeks and streams. At the heart of the farm is the closed herd of 60 grass-fed cows which, to a large degree, provides the pulse and rhythm for the farming operations. The cows furnish the milk for our Creamery and provide, along with the other farm animals, the basis of our compost, which ensures a continuous, regenerative cycle by building the soil fertility of their pastures and vegetable fields.
