Meet the Purveyors
Bosch Baking – Owner and head baker Jos Bosch is a 3rd generation baker from Europe who was taught how to bake as a teenager by his father. Over the years the family business has grown into a baking company that prides itself in using quality ingredients and is committed to the craft of old world baking.
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.
Mary’s Free Range Chickens is proud to be family owned and operated since 1954. Mary’s son, David Pitman, is a third-generation Pitman farmer that leads the company today. 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.
