Sprout Creek Farm, Inc. is a 501c3 incorporated not-for-profit organization. Sprout Creek Farm encompasses 200 acres in Dutchess County, NY. It is three different entities, distinct yet dynamically intertwined. It’s a working farm, raising free-ranging cows, sheep, goats, turkeys, guinea fowl, chickens and pigs. It’s a market, selling their internationally award-winning cheeses and farm-produced meats. And it’s an educational center, offering day, weekend and summer programs and experiences for both children and adults that will foster appreciation for and understanding of, our place within the natural world.
Their cheeses are made from the nutritious and creamy (antibiotic and hormone free) milk of their small herds of cows and goats that roam the pastures eating what they’re supposed to eat—grass. Cheeses aged over 60 days are made with raw milk—bigger flavor and very nutritious. Those tender and fresh cheeses aged less than 60 days are made with pasteurized milk. From the much loved pastured animals to the cheeses lovingly crafted and aged, you are sure to “Taste the Difference a Little Grass Makes.
The mission of Sprout Creek Farm is to educate people to understand and appreciate our connection to the earth and our responsibility for its care. As well as producing and selling our meats and cheeses, the purposes of the farm are:
• to provide educational experiences for children and adults that will foster appreciation for, and understanding of, our place within the natural world, and thus encourage responsibility for the future of our environment
• to offer programs that will reconnect people to the rich agricultural heritage of the United States
• to offer an experience of community as a model of peaceful living
In collaboration with Organic Hudson Valley, join us for an evening of food, drinks, live music, guided farm tour and hay rides under the full frost moon. You can make a difference and help save this incredible farm, one ticket at a time!
If local businesses stick together and support each other’s growth, we will ensure the future of the Hudson Valley as a wonderful and vibrant place to live.
