Co będziecie robić

Guests will gather in the garden overlooking the pond and wooded wetlands where we'll all get acquainted while enjoying organic refreshments. We'll start our tour by walking through the vegetable herb/garden, seeing the honeybee apiary and observe native plants and insects. As we approach the hen house we'll see the birds through the glass door - anxious to come outside and make a hurried dash to scratch the ground, eat the vegetation and take dirt baths. While we observe them we'll learn about the many breeds of chickens in our flock, their unique appearance and temperaments. Pecking order will be observed and poultry life-cycles discussed while we enjoy watching them romp, mate, eat and play (not necessarily in that order). We will visit the various coops and see where they roost, sleep, drink, eat and where the hens lay their eggs (which we will collect). Then we'll escort the chickens to their outdoor enclosure where they can enjoy the remainder of the day. After we say goodbye to our new feathered friends we'll return to the garden for a lesson about eggs (there is a lot to know about eggs). The Pound Ridge Organics Farm Market will open for an exclusive opportunity to taste, shop and get some local organic and artisan products to bring home as souvenirs of your experience on our farm. We can't wait for your visit!

Passionate about raising the standards for farm animals, my work focuses on the humane treatment of poultry. I have a particular interest in preserving heritage and landrace breeds of chickens, those that still possess natural behaviors and characteristics (flying, foraging etc). A large portion of my flock includes 'Icelandic chickens', of which there are only 5K remaining in the world. Often referred to as 'The Chicken Whisperer' I'm closely connected to my birds, with an innate understanding of their needs. In addition to tours and classes on my farm, I also present at agricultural and environmental conferences in the US and abroad. As a Snail of Approval recipient and chairman of the regional chapter of Slow Food, I incorporate the values of 'Good Clean and Fair' in all that I do on my farm, in my teaching kitchen and in my market

Slow Food to globalna organizacja społeczna, którą utworzono w 1989 roku. Ma ona na celu zapobiegać zanikaniu lokalnych tradycji kulinarnych oraz przeciwdziałać popularyzacji kultury fast food. Od momentu powstania przeobraziła się w światowy ruch społeczny, który dąży do tego, by wszyscy mieli dostęp do dobrej, czystej, tradycyjnej żywności. Twój wkład, oprócz wsparcia gospodarza, pomoże Slow Food wdrożyć projekty na całym świecie, które mają na celu wzmocnienie pozycji lokalnych społeczności, promowanie regionalnych rolników i producentów oraz wspieranie rozwoju szkolnych ogrodów i projektów edukacyjnych.

Gdzie będziecie

Pound Ridge with only 2,500 full time residents, and an equal amount of weekenders, is home to the largest park in Westchester, The Ward Pound Ridge Reservation, boasting 4,700 acres of natural wilderness. Scotts Corners, where Pound Ridge Organics is situated, is the smallest hamlet in the county. This historic, quiet but 'hip' town (that has never seen a traffic light) has been a haven for artists, musicians, writers & celebrities for decades.

This was such an unexpected joy. Had no idea how fun this would be! And educational! Seeing the chicken explosion and talking with the owners and farm keepers was informative and entertaining. They had delicious snacks from their market that of course made us want to go shopping after and we stocked up on cheese, honey, baked goods and more. Definitely can find yourself spending money here if you are a foodie and want to be organic and make conscious choices. Inspired to start a compost and volunteer in a local garden with chickens. Very sweet time here

This experience was given to my friend as a birthday gift. She, and I could never had had such a wonderful day. The cooking experience allowed everyone to actively participate. The information and knowledge of the chef was such that even my friend (who is an amazing cook) learned many new things. Donna was amazing to work with and made the entire day very special. And, last but not least, the food was delicious.
