Hessian Hill

With a 50 year history of family farming tradition and providing eggs and meat – now including seasonal greens, herbs and flowering baskets to the community, this team of sisters, Jess Goblet and Liz Goblet-Schubert, contend that their decision to return to the family farm was an easy one.  The last five years have breathed new light, life and energy into the friendly farm, bolstering this agricultural delight on the Schoharie county landscape – one in which everyone is invited to experience and take advantage of a tour. While the greenhouse is a favored space – especially this time of year, there is plenty to be seen. “Someone is always on premises…suffice to say, our doors are indeed always open.”

One of the pearls of being a farmer here in Schoharie County is knowing the network of supports from neighbors exists.  Farming is hard work. The variables of the day to day are as vast as they can be challenging. What makes the effort rewarding is not only the cohesiveness of commitment from family, but the undeniable support of neighbors who without fail, work together to ensure that the show can always go on.  Schoharie County farming, it’s a lifestyle to be proud of – sentiments from the sisters themselves.

On the horizon for Hessian Hill Farm is a dog day care center and kennel. What animal and pet owner wouldn’t want to retreat to this friendly space?  As soon as the ground thaws construction will be also be underway for Hessian Hill Market where consumers will readily be able to purchase Hessian Hill farm generated products. From honey to preserves, jellies and jams, customers can be assured that the products created derive from all that is grown on premises. And, that the recipes are the favorites of family members. All are encouraged to try the hot pepper jelly and the tomato sauce – a “bit spicy” maybe for some but oooh so good. With the establishment of the market, routine hours will afford this busy family’s guests additional opportunities to engage in workshops and other green activities, down on the farm fun.  Stay tuned for a schedule of delights, and do mark mother’s day on your calendars for a visit to the farm.
