Out and About: Gray Horse Farm

A couple of weekends ago my friend asked me if I wanted to go visit Gray Horse Farm.  I’m ashamed to say that I had never been there even though it was only 20 minutes from my house.  However, when I got there I immediately feel in love.  There were chickens running around, friendly little goats, baby piglets and big gentle spirited horses.

The thing I love most Gray Horse Farm is their commitment to organic farming. They are one of only three farms that are certified organic in Dutchess County New York and they are also the only certified organic and certified naturally grown farm in Dutchess County. How cool is that!

I think it’s really important to support our local farms so I hope by sharing this you can see what a small farm can offer. They sell eggs, whole chickens, heritage turkeys, lambs, beef, pork and hay.  Everything is certified organic and natural – it’s always nice to know where your food comes from.  Plus when they say free range they really mean free range. Look at those chicken below.  Those are some happy chickens! A big thanks to my friend Jessica for posing with the chicken Smile

    What a great experience to have visiting an organic farm! I wish I lived in New York, so I could go visit myself. Love organic foods, especially seeing where the organic food come from. Great post!

    Yay! Awesome! I try to buy local and organic as much as possible and it’s always great when you can actually go visit the place in person! So cool.

    Those pigs are the cutest things I have ever seen! I would want to take one home as a pet. Your friend is awesome for holding a chicken…I would be a little scared it would attack. I really need to find an organic farm around here. I live in a huge farm state and hardly ever hear of any, it’s very sad. Great post on reminding people to support their local areas though!
