New York Farm Stand & Eatery Closing Dutchess County Location
A family-owned and operated farm stand market and eatery in Dutchess County, New York has announced they are closing after 10+ years.
For many years the folks at McEnroe Organic Farm have provided the area with some of the Hudson Valley's best farm-raised meats, vegetables, and fruits. The selection of meats and more have had customers coming from far and wide to enjoy the "fruits" of the family-owned farm but even with all of the support from loyal customers, it appears that they have decided to close the farm stand market and eatery.
Dutchess County's McEnroe Organic Farm Closing Market Stand
Sadly, after 10+ years of providing the Hudson Valley with certified organic and regionally grown foods the McEnroe family has announced that they are closing the McEnroe Market and Eatery located at 5409 Route 22, Millerton, NY. The announcement, made on Facebook said,
"With a heavy heart, we announce the closing of McEnroe market, eatery & nursery. We will continue our commitment to organic farming, focusing on wholesale to local markets and restaurants."
Many farm supporters left comments after the announcement asking various questions about the farm's future so to get as much information as possible we talked with the farm's development manager Olivia Skeen about the closing.
Why is McEnroe Farm Market & Eatery Closing?
Skeen told us that after much discussion, and in large part due to financial difficulties the family had to make an "incredibly difficult decision" and decided that they had to close the market and eatery. The family shared their thanks on Facebook saying,
"We appreciate all the support our loyal customers have given to us throughout the years."
Skeen did tell us that the farm will still be growing items on its land and will still offer many of the things it has been known for over the years including public tours that highlight farming the sustainable and natural way and composting.
Skeen also said that the farm will continue to offer its amazing organic Angus and Wagyu beef CSA through its website and is planning to offer certain items online when they become available, "Follow us on our social media pages to stay updated on when specific items become available."
What About McEnroe Compost?
Over the years McEnroe Farm has also become well-known for composting and Skeen told us that their compost office will remain open and continue to offer customers bagged and bulk soil. The compost office is located nearby at 194 Coleman Station Road Millerton, NY.
