Sub Edge Farm offers humanely raise heritage breed pigs, pasture raised broilers, layer hens and 100% grass-fed beef (from their website). Sometimes they have their own honey for sale. They are relatively small and have limited quantities so it's best to email ahead of time. They also offer 100 shares of spring - fall CSA of various sizes for small, med or large families. Egg shares as well as a beer, bread and cheese option can be added to the farm CSA. Winter CSAs avail Dec - Feb. They host farm dinners. They also have classes (such as how to grow your own mushrooms) as well as educational programs/tours for children (like learning about the animals and pollinators). In their farm shop along with the produce and some meats you might also find their own honey and eggs. They also have maple syrup, milk, bread, cheese, kimchee from other local farms/vendors.They are small and family run (mom can often be found in the farm shop with her baby behind the counter) and don't have a business phone in the shop so you'll have to email them, and they will get back to you soon as promised. They are also NOFA New York Certified Organic, LLC. You can also order some meats online and arrange for pick up. I have seen the chickens in an outdoor pen with room to roam, but I'm not sure if this meets the criteria for 'free range,' if there is a criteria at all! And I don't know if their honey is produced on site. If you email them, they will be happy to give you more info. Click here for our Facebook page. (ADDED: June 13, 2018, Suggested by a visitor)
