 W. H. Buckley Farm

Our farm is located on a 300 acre historic farm in Upstate New York. The grounds originally supported a dairy farm, but are in the process of being reclaimed and restored to raise grassfed beef, pastured pork and free range chicken and turkeys.

In addition to restoring existing structures on the grounds, we are adding new facilities, making sure to stay true to their heritage, quality and purpose. These improvements have included adding: an onsite farm store, butcher and cafe; a smokehouse; a piggery; and a poultry barn. The farm property also includes the Buckley and Lakeridge Farmhouses, which have been renovated and are available for rental.

Pruyn House

In the early 1980’s, Fred Field, former Supervisor of the Town of Colonie, was approached by a small of group of concerned citizens, one of whom was Jean Olton, Town historian. They advocated for the purchase of an old and deteriorating home on Old Niskayuna Road. In 1983, the Town of Colonie granted approval and purchased the house and property for $110,000. It was purchased not only to preserve and restore it as a local historic site but also to serve as the Town’s cultural and educational center. Extensive repairs ensued. Two years later, the Pruyn House opened to the public and hosted the Vanguard Showhouse. The Buhrmaster Barn from route 7 was brought to the site in 1987 and in 1996 the Verdoy Schoolhouse was added. Over the ensuing years, a carriage house, potting shed, smoke house and exterior restrooms were added. The Burhmaster Barn is a stunning venue and hosts over 20 rustic weddings per year. The Friends of Pruyn House is a non-profit corporation organized to manage and govern the site in cooperation with the Town of Colonie.

The Bark Eater Inn

Located in Keene we are nestled in the heart of the Adirondack High Peaks and at the gateway to Lake Placid’s Olympic Region.  We’re only minutes away from numerous trailheads, the village of Lake Placid, and Whiteface Mountain.   This makes us ideally located as a base camp for any Adirondack adventure.

The Bark Eater Inn was originally a stagecoach stop on an old family farm and has hosted guests for more than 150 years.  While it has had a diverse history along the way, including a dairy farm, tractor dealer, xc-ski center, and horse stables, it has always been a respite for travelers.  After lovingly reviving and updating the buildings and grounds, we are excited to carry on this tradition.

That said, our intention is to offer more than just a place to rest your head (although we hear our “cloud beds” are pretty cozy).   Our hope is that people come here to have an authentic Adirondack experience that will be remembered and revisited.  We infuse our passions into all we do here.  You’ll find threads of nature connection, sustainability, farm fresh food, gardening, herbalism, crafting, education, community, athletics, yoga, and more, woven into the fabric of this incredible place.
