Irish-Style Lemon Honey & More Gifts of Comfort & Joy
For tea drinkers, knitters, chocolate lovers, and wintertime hikers, the homey shop at Heather Ridge Farm offers the gift of coziness. Treat yourself to brunch with their new chef, Robert Lugo, and wrap up your shopping while you're at it.
We've already shared our love affair with the Irish-Style Lemon Honey from Heather Ridge Farm. Stir the aromatic honey into your tea for some extra comfort during cold season, or–better yet–add it to a hot toddy. Like many of the farm shop's products, you can buy the lemon honey online (though you'll see a wider selection and save on shipping if you can shop in-person). Pair it with their handmade and insanely delicious Chocolate Honey Truffles, one of the shop's handmade mugs, and a branded Heather Ridge Farm peppermint lip balm, so the receiver of your gift knows where to go when her honey and chocolate run out!
For your favorite knitter, the richly colored, locally made skeins of Sheepy Valley Wool Yarn are available in the shop and also online. For the decorator who knows that draping a lambskin over a chair, bed, or bench warms up an entire room, Heather Ridge Farm has both dorset lamskins and Icelandic lambskins. For the hiker on your list, they've got Sheepskin Boot Liners (see photo below), to warm up winter boots. For your favorite canine, they've got Dried Grassfed Liver Dog Treats.
Talk about one-stop shopping! You're going to need to reward yourself when you're done, and fortunately, they've got the best brunch in town.
Heather Ridge Farm's store and cafe are open from 11am to 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays. The farm is located at 989 Broome Center Road in Preston Hollow, NY; 518-239-6234, but their website says, "We find that GPS directions can often take you ways we’d never dream of suggesting to you!"
