Tony George, half of the Mei’s Homemade Dumplings team, took some time to capture our market in photos. Enjoy!

White Oak Farm Celebrates 40 Years!

With a 40 year milestone,  Sally Laing shared some of the history of White Oak Farm with us.

This is the 40th year of our being here at White Oak Farm. We came in July of 1979. My Mom, Jo Nicolaisen (“Grandma Jo”) was with us.

A little history

This was the earlier home of Nathaniel House in the mid 1800’s. The house and property passed through the House family into the 1900’s when it was sold to the Knox family. Fred’s Uncle Bill, William B. Dailey, bought it back from them in the 1940’s. more “White Oak Farm Celebrates 40 Years!”

Winning “Healthy, yummy camping recipes”!

“I like to stuff a red pepper with cooked rice, pesto and diced mushroom. Then I drizzle olive oil over the pepper, sprinkle with lemon pepper salt.

Just wrap in foil and place at the edge of the campfire for ten minutes, turn, then ten minutes more. Open up and sprinkle a little grated cheese on top. Yummm!”

– Liz Sample, Hillsdale NY

Eat this as a salad, or fill a wrap with it! Can be made a day ahead of time.
Black beans
Cucumber (mini one)
Lemon juice

Name our Animals!

Thanks to local artist Jane Weaver, we now have a charming new family of barnyard animals at the entrance to our barn. But the cow, pig, mama sheep and her 2 lambs need names! (the dog is photo bombing….  he doesn’t need a new name).

Submit your suggestions for names at the Manager’s table, or in writing to copakehillsdalefarmersmarket@gmail.com.

Winners will get bragging rights, and also a special surprise!



A little extra fun for our May 25th Opening Day…

Kastania Olive Oil
