Honey Locust Farm, which is located just off Route 9W in the town of Newburgh, the farm stand offers fresh vegetables, herbs, cut flowers, live plants and hand-crafted products. Honey Locust Farm House focuses on chef-centered produce, growing hard-to-find greens, herbs, and vegetables for restaurateurs(including Jean-Georges Vongerichten, and the Culinary Institute of America)and creative home kitchen gourmets. Honey Locust Farm House is committed to growing in balance with nature. Only sustainable, organic methods are used to insure the integrity of the earth and the health of its people. We had a tour led by Sarah Elizabeth, an herbalist she showed many plants that are used in medicinal ways . We also helped weeded and tilled 600 sq. feet of soil for future plantings.
