Payne Farm was purchased by the Feldman Family in 2000. Formerly a Dairy Farm, and Home to Elsie the Cow (More Below) the Farm has since been planted with grape vineyards. Being that the Feldman Family has been in the catering business since 1936, the fourth generation of children thought it to be no better opportunity for the latest incarnation of Birch Hill Catering (Herbert's East), formerly Herbert's Catering in Downtown Albany, to evolve into Stablegate Farm. www.birchhillcatering.com
We firmly believe that farm to table is not just a movement but a way of life and that only the best food with highest quality ingredients be offered here.
We are not only top quality service providers but also mindful humanitarians that value the earth, sustainability and healthy practices.
It is the intention to have joy, knowlegde and spirit be cultivated on our farm through sound, movement, sacred and celebratory functions.
We hope to offer you an escape in the countryside for whatever may bring you here, and perhaps memories to take along with you when you go.
