Apple Pond Farm and Renewable Energy Education Center


Callicoon Center, New York
Family Farm

Located just two hours from the George Washington Bridge in NYC, we farm 80 acres and raise sheep, goats and chickens, horses. We follow organic practices. We prefer to sell custom slaughtered//butchered frozen lamb and goat direct to customers; this is the best value for your money. Lambs and kids are available for Easter. Call for details. Free range chicken eggs are available in warm months. The farm offers scheduled tours in summer, Friday/Saturday morning programs for children, workshops on renewable energy for business and home owners, classes on spinning wool and making goat cheese. - most require reservations. A 3 bed room guest house is available for farm vacations - where you can participate in as many of farm activities as you wish and enjoy vegetables, eggs while while you are here. .We are about 10 miles from Bethel Woods, the old site of the Woodstock Festival. There is a year around internship program. We speak Japanese - and even have a page on our web site in Japanese. We make about 75% of our own electricity here from a wind turbine and photo voltaic cells. we have solar hot water, too, a straw bale house and a truck that runs on used vegetable oil.
