About Us / Hawthorne Valley Farm History: Hawthorne Valley Farm is a diversified, 400-acre, certified Biodynamic farm in Harlemville (Ghent), NY, about 35 miles southeast of Albany and just minutes away from the Berkshires in Massachusetts. We are home to a 15-acre market garden; an on-site certified dairy processing plant, where we make yogurt, cheese, and quark from our cows' milk; a certified organic bakery, where breads and pastries are baked daily from freshly-ground flour; a full-line natural foods and grocery store, where almost all shopping needs can be met; a Community Supported Agriculture program, with 4 site locations (one local and three in the NYC area); and a Green Market department, which takes our goods weekly to the renowned Union Square Green Market (and Inwood Green Market) in New York City.HVF is part of the Hawthorne Valley Association, a non-profit that promotes social renewal through agriculture, education, and the arts. Other branches include the Hawthorne Valley School, a K-12 independent Waldorf school; the Visting Students Program, which brings children from the Northeast to spend a week on the farm; the Farmscape Ecology Program, which does research on the interaction of agriculture and native species habitat in our region; and the Alkion Center for Adult Education Foundation Studies in Anthroposophy and Teacher Training in Waldorf Education.The farm is open to the public--visitors are always welcome.
