Welcome to Cold Brook Farm, nestled in one of the many cozy valleys of beautiful Central New York. Here you'll find some snapshots of our small farm and of some of our hand-made goods. We found it in Cortland County in an 1896 farmhouse anchoring 135 acres of pasture and woodland. "What are you going to do with all that land?" If we had a nickel for every time friends and family asked that question, we'd be driving better cars (and tractors). The simple answer is that we want to do what we can to try and preserve some of the qualities of what attracted us to this area and this life. So we spend much of our time and money finding out just how hard any kind of farming really is. Bringing back the pastures, preserving the hundred year old barn, putting up the hay, raising the animals… it's all part of the life and has its own rewards. Shepherding is one way in which we try to maintain the magnificent barn and breathtaking farmland instead of allowing disuse and disrepair become their fortune, as is the fate of so many American family farms. Over time the farm will pass into other hands.
So now that Tammie's career has changed from teacher to Mother and Hearthkeeper, we've begun to shift our attention to making our farming habit-and our lives in general- be more self-sufficient.
