In New York's lower Hudson Valley, dairy farms, orchards, vegetable growers and vineyards characterize the region's agricultural horn of plenty. The area is filled with families that have dedicated their lives to farming, from eighth-generation stalwarts to newcomers drawn to the region's climate, soil and access to metropolitan markets.

Warwick Valley Winery


Warwick Valley Winery & Distillery is located in the foothills of the Hudson Valley, nestled between the picturesque Mt. Eve and Mt. Adam. Since its inception in 1989, the farm's mission has been to create fruit-based alcoholic beverages that are as unique as the fruits themselves. The farm encourages visitors to share in the farm's adventures and to sample their products. The farm's offerings began with their critically acclaimed Doc's Draft Hard Apple Cider made from apples in their orchard. In 2001 the farm opened the first distillery in the Hudson Valley since Prohibition and New York's first fruit micro-distillery with the belief that the fruits grown from the fertile Hudson Valley could be made into the highest quality fruit brandies and liqueurs.

Lowland Farm


Lowland Farm is named for the flat expanse of rich, grassy pastures and fields that slope into lofty hills skirted by the rambling Pochuck Creek. In 2007, the farm was permanently protected under Warwick’s Purchase of Development Rights program.

Lowland Farm’s cows spend their entire lives out of doors, grazing on open pastures in Amity, by the Black Dirt fields of Pine Island, NY. Cows are mixed breeds, including Angus, Hereford, and Devon, they graze on grass in the summer and, in winter, eat hay harvested from the bottom lands of the farm. Pigs are heritage breeds who live on feed and the fruits of their foraging. Sheep are “hair” sheep, breeds from warm climates that shed their wool naturally: Katahdins, Dorpers, and St. Croix. They graze on land by Blooms Corners Road. Not crowded into feedlots, they do not need, nor receive, antibiotics. They grow naturally, free of growth-promoting hormones.

"At Lowland Farm we aim to raise our animals responsibly, to graze our land in a sustainable fashion, and to price our grass-fed beef, lamb and pork reasonably." 
— Will Brown and Barbara Felton, with Jason Friedman, Farm Manager and Arian Rivera, Shepherd.

The Brady FARM



The Brady Farm is one of the most picturesque farms in all of the Hudson Valley. Situated on top of Mount Peter, the farm was established in 1828 and has been continually farmed since that time. The farm property is preserved so it will never be developed. 

Today, The Brady Farm raises beef cattle, and also hosts weddings and special events.

Westtown Brew Works


Westtown Brew Works is a true farm brewery, handcrafting small batch beer brewed with the farm's own hops and other ingredients grown by their farming neighbors. Their brewing philosophy is to let the best local ingredients guide each beer’s style. The farm's hops are naturally grown and hand harvested.

The farm-brewed ales are crafted naturally and feature local ingredients. The selections change weekly, but some of the core brews include: Sugar Shack, a robust porter fermented with local maple; and Three Hives, brewed with the farm's honey complimented by a generous amount of roasted malts.

Pierson's Farms was established in 1790 by Josiah Pierson. Now, Josiah's great-great-great-great grandson Orrin Pierson is running the show, along with his wife and children, who represent the eighth generation of family farmers. The homestead was recognized as a bicentennial farm in 2001 by the New York State Agricultural Society and adorned with an historic marker. Pierson's is one of the oldest farms in Orange County. 

Today, the Piersons raise natural beef and dairy heifers, grow flowers in their greenhouses, host a pick-your-own pumpkin harvest in October, sell freshly cut Christmas trees in December, and have a gift shop filled with locally-made treats in their refurbished old wagon house.

Apple Dave's

The orchard offers 11 varieties of the freshest, juiciest apples to choose from, and has a pick-your-own pumpkin patch! The beautiful relaxing surroundings also include the farm's country store.

The farm has diversified in recent years to include a distillery, winery, and country store known for its famous cider donuts made from the farm's apples.

5-Spoke Creamery is a dairy farm in the heart of the Hudson Valley's Orange County. Owner Alan Glustoff is passionate about bicycles and his artisinal cheeses. He saved a 100-year-old farmstead from development and rebuilt his beautiful farm from the ground up.

5-Spoke Creamery creates superior, small-batch, raw-milk kosher cheeses.

In 2018, Wrenegade Foundation donated more than $50,000 to local organizations in our host communities via our Farm to Fork Fondo Volunteer Competitions. This year we'll be giving away even more, and your votes help decide which groups get the biggest donations.

At each Farm to Fork Fondo event, all the volunteers will be assigned to teams that each represent a different area farm or charitable organization. From the registration tent to the last aid station, you will be greeted and cheered on by volunteers who are competing to bring the most spirit to the day. Ask questions of the volunteer teams to get to know them, their missions, and what makes the event host community unique. At the end of your ride, you will vote for your favorite team and help determine the size of the cash donations we give.

The Volunteer Competition is supported by tax-deductible participant donations to Wrenegade Foundation, sponsors, and 100% of all raffle ticket sales.

Note: New volunteer groups will be announced Summer 2019
