Fluegge Egg Ranch – Our chickens are treated like family! We produce, process and package our eggs completely on our farm. We believe our birds deserve the highest quality, natural feed on the market as well as fresh drinking water from our own wells.
Hudson Bourbon – Fate is a fickle thing. In 2001, when we purchased the Tuthilltown Gristmill to open a rock climber’s ranch, the neighbors balked. So we had to find another way. The 240-year history of the mill led us to it. Grain, water, yeast and a new purpose: We decided to make whiskey. With our own skills and a lot of hard work, we converted the two granaries into the first whiskey distillery in New York State since Prohibition.
Leoness Cellars – The word leoness, meaning ‘village of dreams’, is the inspiration behind our lifelong quest to create world class wines from the vineyard of Temecula Valley.
The Loose Leaf Tea Company provides the highest quality blends of tea using only organic fair-trade teas, herbs, and spices.

David and his brothers have been taught by their father Rick, who learned from his father Don, about the importance of animal husbandry and our responsibility to protect the welfare of animals.
Nicolau Farms is one of the last remaining goat farmsteads left in California milking around 150 goats. By farmstead, we raise our own livestock, grow all of our own forage for feed, and produce farmstead cheeses right on the farm.
