The Farm

Welcome to the Cook Farm! We are a 26.5 acre diversified farm nestled beneath Owls Head Mountain.

What exactly is a diversified farm? A diversified farm is an operation that produces a variety of crops and/or animals, and intentionally includes functional biodiversity in order to maintain ecosystem services that provide critical inputs to agriculture, such as soil fertility, pest and disease control, water use efficiency, and pollination.

We raise a variety of livestock species including goats, pigs, turkeys, chickens, and ducks utilizing regenerative practices with an emphasis on the humane treatment of our animals. We are perhaps best known for the artisanal soaps that we craft with our own goat’s milk. We sell our products at our farmstand and at local farmer’s markets.

We are firm believers in the power of local farms to address the instability of our modern food system, and we are dedicated to educating others about the issues facing American agriculture. We encourage people from all walks of life to visit our farm to learn how food can be produced in a sustainable manner.

We are proud members of Tri-Lakes Regional Farmers’ Cooperative and Adirondack Harvest.
