Farm Stops

Bike the Barns is all about connecting with our food, our farms and our farming landscapes. This year's event will feature three farm stops, which provide an opportunity to meet the farmers and learn more about their operations, their inspirations and their work. 


Echo Farm, Essex, NY

Nestled between Sprig and Whipple Mountains, Echo Farm originated as a diversified homestead and dairy operation. Today, it encompasses nearly 170 acres of tillable and forested land that was acquired through conservation partnerships. And, they also do farm-to-table catering. Follow the farm and catering business on Instagram and Facebook.


Juniper Hill Farm, Wadhams, NY

Juniper Hill Farm is nestled between the Adirondack Mountains and Lake Champlain, on the Boquet River in Wadhams, New York. Established in 2007, Juniper Hill started by growing on three acres of fertile land; now, they cultivate over one hundred acres. They are continuously adding more greenhouses with a goal of bringing to market an earlier and higher quality variety of products. During the summer, Juniper Hill can be found selling  produce at five local farmer’s markets weekly. They also provide wholesale goods to local grocery stores and restaurants. Follow Juniper Hill Farm on Facebook.

Reber Rock Farm, Essex, NY

This 120-acre draft powered farm on the southern edge of the Reber Valley specializes in Pasture Raised Organic Chicken, Pasture Raised Pork Fed Organic Grain, and 100% Grass Fed Beef. Reber Rock is designed as a two-family farm, with the management and labor burden split across two couples. Follow Reber Rock Farm on Instagram and Facebook.
