New Year's brunch/farm tour at Heather Ridge Farm

heather ridge farm donkeysThis could be something a little different to round out the holidays: Heather Ridge Farm in Preston Hollow is offering a farm tour and brunch buffet the weekend after New Year's Day. Blurbage:

The brunch buffet will feature many items including caramelized French toast, maple chipotle breakfast sausage, eggs to order, Dublin Coddle, Irish Brown bread and many more items. Many of the items on the buffet were raised and made on the farm, including the pork sausages, grassfed corned beef hash, no nitrate bacon in the Dublin Coddle and the eggs. Heather Ridge Farm is certified Animal Welfare Approved. ...
The farm animals will be in their winter quarters. Among the animals to see are goats, sheep, llamas, alpacas, donkeys, laying hens, geese and guinea fowl. The tour will last approximately an hour.

The brunch is $24 per person (kids pay their age), and the tour is included. It's Saturday, January 2 and Sunday, January 3 from 11 am to 3 pm -- reservations recommended. The farm is located just a bit over the Albany County line in Schoharie

If the name Heather Ridge Farm rings a bell, it's the same farm that provided the goats for the "goatscaping" project at Albany's Loudonville Reservoir. And the farm has also been offering a series of monthly supper club dinners, of which we've heard many good things.

Good to see promotion of Heather Ridge! I've always heard wonderful things (especially about their ever popular 'oink and moo chili') though have yet to go despite driving by often. This may be just the occasion to drop in.

A few different things that make me feel fancy: dinner and drinks at Peck's Arcade in Troy, drinks at the Speakeasy in Albany and catching a show at Proctor's in Schenectady. And one more out there -- going to a farm to table dinner at Dancing Ewe farm in Granville, NY (what a beautiful setting and absolutely delicious food and wine).
