Old Ford Farm is a 40 acre diversified family farm located in New Paltz, NY. Becky and Joe started the in 2008 and currently have a herd of 15 Jersey cows. We sell certified raw milk out of our farm store, where we also sell our eggs, vegetables, chicken, pork, and beef. We both work full-time on the farm and have 3 full-time employees (2 year-round and 1 seasonal). We also have two young children who help out on the farm. We absolutely love the day-to-day work of farming, but are also motivated by the larger goal of bringing about a more sustainable food system.
To us, a better food system is made of farms that utilize regenerative practices, food that is produced and consumed locally, and diets that are based on traditional whole foods. Producing quality food from grass-fed animals is central to our mission as farmers.
