Brush Brook Farm

A Burns Family Farm

Brush Brook Farm is a third generation Burns family farm raising grass-fed beef and harvesting certified organic hay. The farm was purchased in 1944 by James & Helen Burns. They, together with their son Tom, who joined the farm in 1963, operated the farm as a dairy.

In 2005 it was time to call it quits for the dairy. The fields lay empty, a sad and woeful sight. So, it was decided that raising beef cows and keeping the fields alive in mixed grass hay should be the next venture for the family farm. Maintaining the land as agricultural is a tradition and commitment of the family.

Brush Brook Farm's grass-fed ‘beefers’ are given free range of the farm’s certified organic pastures during the grazing season. In the winter months, they are supplied a diet of the farm’s certified organic hay and other certified organic grass products. No hormones, antibiotics or animal by-products are used in the raising of the animals.

Brush Brook Farm harvests hay that has been certified by NOFA-NY. Aside from being used to feed our livestock, the farm supplies hay to local certified organic dairy farms.
