Cook Farm Welcomes All to Breakfast on the Farm

Owls Head NY – The Cook Farm is a small family operation, founded by first generation farmers Brandon & Laura Cook.

We raise a variety of livestock species including goats, pigs, turkeys, chickens, and ducks utilizing regenerative practices with an emphasis on the humane treatment of our animals. We are perhaps best known for the soaps that we make with our own goat’s milk. We sell our products at our farmstand and at local farmer’s markets. We are firm believers in the power of local farms to address the instability of our modern food system, and we are dedicated to educating others about the issues facing American agriculture. We encourage people from all walks of life to visit our farm to learn how food can be produced in a sustainable manner. We are proud members of Adirondack Farmer’s Market CooperativeTri-Lakes Regional Farmers’ Cooperative, and Adirondack Harvest.

We wanted to share our love of local food and inspire those around us to be more conscious in their eating, so in 2022, we started inviting the community to join us for free breakfasts on the farm featuring locally produced ingredients. We quickly realized that we were on to something special by serving food outdoors in the environment that it was grown, and by giving people a chance to have casual conversations with some of the farmers who had grown it. We had such a good response from the folks who attended in 2022 that we decided to make breakfast on the farm a regular fixture. We have come to see these events as an opportunity to deepen our relationships with our customers, introduce new people to our farm, and above all, celebrate good food.

Breakfast is served from 9-11 a.m. There is no cost to attend, but we greatly appreciate donations so that we may continue our work as advocates for the local food movement. Please note that menu offerings are subject to change without notice. Food is available on a first come, first served basis while supplies last.
