Heermance Farm is a historical farm operating since 1730 in the Hudson River Valley, upstate New York, just minutes from Rhinebeck. 



Heermance Farm sits at the intersection of agriculture, art, culture, and community. It works behind the scenes growing an extraordinary variety of the highest quality specialty vegetables, custom blend-fed eggs, and Steelhead trout to rave reviews and an array of pasteurized proteins like Turkeys, rabbits, hogs, and lambs for NYC's top chefs - all while prioritizing sustainable farming practices. In addition, Heermance Farm publishes its own biannual Art/Gastronomy magazine as a unique platform to introduce its products to chefs, restaurants, and friends throughout the world, as well as hosts a variety of cultural events onsite, serving its community beyond its intended traditional functions.


Farmer's winter Notes



Winter vegetable growing at Heermance Farm is confined to our heated greenhouses; these greenhouses are the engine driving Heermance Farm vegetable and greens production through 2 main strategies:


Heermance Farm raised organic soil beds for growing delicious root crops such as; Beets, carrots, Japanese turnips, or larger leaf crops like Cauliflower, fennel, and broccoli. 

And we also have our hydroponic Greenhouse at Five-Star farm, which produces sessions of fast-growing lettuce heads, broccoli, Bok Choi, cabbages, parsley, and herbs.

These two sets of greenhouse growing strategies are Heermance Farm‘s best friends and growing facilities.
