Established in 2005, Eight Mile Creek Farm is tucked away on a dirt road in Westerlo, NY in the Helderberg Hilltowns. The 126 acre farm is run by the McSweeney family. The house and barns were originally built in 1835. From that time until the 1950’s it was a working family farm, transitioning into low-scale agricultural production for hay in the mid-1950’s.
The McSweeneys set out to restore the land as a productive working farm in 2005 by building a diversified agricultural business. They have obtained, and maintain, their annual organic certification, providing customers with the healthiest products available. Additionally, the McSweeneys work hard to protect and nurture the natural resources that their farm depends on for survival. The McSweeneys produce over 175 varieties of vegetables, melons and herbs. Produce includes certified organic beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, cauliflower, cabbage, carrots, escarole, fennel, asian greens, lettuce, mesclun, chard, kale, kohlrabi, leeks, melons, watermelon, onions, scallions, parsnips, rutabagas, peppers, radishes, summer and winter squashes, tomatillos, tomatoes, okra, sugar snap peas, brocoli raab, cucumbers, eggplant, beets, and sunflowers.
They also produce certified organic beef, eggs, pork and chicken. These products are available year round. Just call ahead to schedule a pick up time.
