Westchester County's Farmland: A Pictorial Guide

You probably don’t associate Westchester County with farmland, but these working farms may change your mind.



Barnyard animals, seasonal crops, overflowing farm stands. When you think of Westchester, these are probably not the first images that come to mind. Still, there are a number of working farms within our county. Often hidden behind a large main house or down a scenic dirt road, the farms of Westchester produce a number of crops—heirloom varieties for discerning chefs, vibrant flowers, medicinal herbs, pick-your-own vegetables. There are even alpacas and their ultra-soft yarn. As spring turns to summer, now is the perfect time to enjoy Westchester’s bounty.
