Guided Tours of Butterfly House & Creekhouse Gardens
The Farmscape Ecology “Field Station” at the Creekhouse is continuing to develop. In addition to our small Butterfly House, where visitors can closely observe local butterflies, the ever-expanding Native Plant Garden, we are working on creating a small loop trail and boardwalk making the stream more accessible and also serving as a “phenology trail” for monitoring the life cycle stages of a selection of plants. New signage and displays featuring our phenology research and information about the native plants in the garden will enrich the visitors’ experience.
Tours are by appointment only and limited to five participants per tour. Participants have to be willing to wear masks whenever we are not able to maintain 6 feet distance from each other. The tours will be offered on most Fridays and Saturdays, through the summer. Please contact Nellie to sign up for this, or one of the other upcoming tours:
Friday, June 25, 1-2pm
Friday, June 25, 3-4pm
Saturday, June 26, 10-11am
Saturday, June 26, noon-1pm
I’ve been here many times, usually on a day trip to get lunch, and to take in the vibe of the community. The food is always outrageously good and the atmosphere tranquil. There are few places like this, where such cooperative values and commitment to high-quality organic food production are so intrinsically linked. This sort of symbiotic relationship between humanism and the environment is the antidote for corporate America. We need more places like Hawthorne Valley.
Move to Ghent, NY, and live only on Hawthorne Farm Store products
I wish there was an ‘obsessed with’ button!
Came from Long Island in search of local organic farms and markets. This farm store had the best products. We were in need of raw milk, best hands down! The baked goods were amazing and so delicious. First time we were able to find baked organic goods with minimal ingredients and soy free. The hot food selection was awesome as well. The staff was super friendly and knowledgeable. The prices were very reasonable. Love this place and will be back soon.
This is one of the most beautiful farms – the animals are treated with love and respect. Such an incredible and gorgeous farm. The farm store is clean and there’s such a variety. The food is always organic and delicious. You must visit!
Raw milk, top-notch sauerkraut, cheeses and a full line array of other organic, biodynamic and local products, this is SO much more than your average farm stand! Hawthorne Valley Farm’s flagship products can be found throughout NYC but if you’re ever up this way, it’s worth stopping by to see where the magic happens.
Hands down best grocery store in the area. Excellent selection of local produce and meat as well as bulk foods and natural health/beauty department. Highly recommend!
What can we say about this now legendary establishment? It’s *everything* you want in a local fresh healthy food and grocery store. A staple of the area for so long now. Raw milk. Fresh, biodynamically-grown vegetables and fruit. Wonderful baked goods and granolas. Every town in the world should have a store like this! They simply do everything right! We’re so glad HVF is so close to home for us!
Extreme integrity. This store offers some of the best food in the entire world. Beautiful, local biodynamic selection.
