J. Glebocki Farms is owned and operated by John Glebocki, a fifth generation farmer in the black dirt region of Orange County, NY. We grow a wide variety of vegetables and specialty crops for farmer's markets and specialty wholesalers in the tri-state area.
We pride ourselves in offering responsibly grown farm fresh produce that is safe and healthy to eat. Since safe growing practices and product handling are priorities at our farm, our shoppers can be confident in the quality of the produce they purchase from J. Glebocki Farms. We are USDA GAP Food Safety Certified (Good Agricultural Practices). On the farm we also employ sustainable farming methods such as crop-rotation, cover-cropping, and companion planting.
Food Safety Begins on the Farm
Farming has given us the chance to pursue several other ventures as a direct offspring of what we do best...growing things!
Orange County Distillery is our farm distillery located on the property in one of the old family barns. All of our liquor is made in the barn with ingredients that we grow in the black dirt. Our current offerings are a sugar beet vodka, corn whiskey, gin, whiskey bourbon and an unaged single malt whiskey. We offer tours, tastings, and cocktails so come visit and enjoy the outdoor seating area and pretty views of the farm.
Brown Barn Farms is a beautiful old barn with upland acerage that we purchased earlier this year. We have a farm market stand, open Thursday through Sunday, featuring our produce and other items such as milk, eggs, cheese, honey and jams from local producers. We have also to begun to host events at the site including s'mores nights, a pig roast and have some private events coming up this season. Follow us on Facebook to keep updated on the latest happenings at the barn.
