From the Farm to our Table

Hilltop House Bed and Breakfast proudly supports our local farmers.  Some of the local sources for our country breakfasts include:

McEnroe Organic Farm just a few miles away in Millerton, NY, is where we get the coffee and sausage.  Among meats and fresh produce, you’ll also find local honey, fresh jams, pies and other baked goods, soup, and a deli.  Stop by for lunch and enjoy the view.  There’s room in our fridge for anything you pick up.  Did you know, Frommer’s named Millerton one of the coolest small towns in the USA?!

Harney & Sons, also located in Millerton, is where we get much of our tea.

Adams Fairacre Farms is where we go to buy the freshest produce and the fresh cut flowers around the house.  I absolutely love shopping there.  Not only will you find specialty foods from different regions of the world and all kinds of cheeses (including an espresso crusted cheese that is to die for) but they also have a gourmet chocolate shop featuring chocolate from around the world as well as some local candy makers.  Does a diet need anything besides fruit and chocolate?  Not mine!

The eggs come from one of my neighbors a few houses down.  If you’ve never had farm fresh eggs, you’re missing out.  What a difference!

Ronnybrook Farm Dairy produces the milk and cream we use.  It comes in glass bottles!  They also make yogurt, ice cream, butter, and cheeses.

I love my town and my neighbors.  I’m thrilled to drive around and see cows in the pastures freely grazing where they belong.  I’m happy to support good farming practices.  I encourage you to visit these sites and learn about your food.  The food is pure and it doesn’t get any better.


Autumn is Here!

It’s fall and gorgeous here in the Hudson Valley.  The leaves are turning but falling fast.  To celebrate the season, we’ve decorated the porch with mums, pumpkins, and gourds from Daisi Hill Farm just a few miles away in Millerton.

Then we made a quick stop at BJs to stock up on Candy for Halloween.  I hope we have enough!
