For the latest little feature on people at or connected with our farm we sat down with Andrew ('Chip') Chiappinelli  who is chef-owner at Grazin' Diner in Hudson, NY. Most weeks of the year we supply Animal Welfare Approved eggs produced by our organically-fed hens here at Little Ghent Farm. There's a strong chance, if you have dined at Grazin' recently, that you've enjoyed some of our eggs.   Gra[...]

We started buying vegetables from Sue before we had our farm, while we were weekenders when we shopped at Hudson farmers' market. We now buy many of our vegetables from Sue throughout the year for the farm kitchen. The vegetables Sue and her team grow are really delicious and we're constantly amazed and grateful about how[...]
 
 
 
 
 
Ironwood Farm, just a few miles from us, is one of the two farms we buy most of our produce from for our farm kitchen here at Little Ghent Farm. We really appreciate that they are a new business like us and being able to support their efforts by buying their product is important to us. Mostly though we buy their product because it is wonderful and delicious. As a family we subscribe to Ironwood's [...]
 
 
 
 
 
... and that's one of our pigs on the front cover. "Evolve Or Die" Written by Abby Luby, Photographs by Meredith Heuer "The brown paper packaging stamped in stippled black ink says “Bread & EGGS.” Beneath that are the words “Laid in Ghent, NY.” The simple, homespun parcel is emblematic of what Little Ghent Farm owners Richard and Mimi Beaven are all about: forward-thinking 21st-centur[...]
