Authenticity

Originally a dairy farm, our 300 historic acres in upstate New York have been reclaimed and restored to raise grass-fed beef, pastured pork, free-range chickens and turkeys. In addition to restoring existing structures on the grounds, we’ve also added new facilities that stay true to the heritage and purpose of the farm.

Farm Weddings

Surrounded by friends and family, say ‘I do’ in our cozy, romantic barn for the farm wedding of your dreams. From our attentive service to our collaboration with photographers, caterers, florists, wedding planners and musicians (use ours or choose your own), our goal is to provide the celebration of a lifetime.

Animals

We believe there’s only one way to raise animals; the way nature intended. Modern farming techniques focus on quantity and largely forego quality, resulting in inferior food loaded with harmful chemicals, GMOs, antibiotics and other substances detrimental to your family’s health. Our sustainable farm animals feed as they naturally would, with cows grazing on grass in open pastures, and pigs, chickens and turkeys raised in open pastures and fed an all-natural diet without growth hormones or antibiotics. The result is cleaner, healthier more flavorful meat and eggs for you and your family. You’ll notice a difference the first time you try our foods!

Thanksgiving Turkeys

What better way to celebrate with loved ones this year than with one of our farm-fresh Thanksgiving turkeys or smoked hams? Our all-natural, pasture-raised birds are never treated with antibiotics or hormones, and are processed with water just before Thanksgiving. The bird you buy from our farm store was never frozen, and we never add fluids like you’ll find in commercially bred birds; extra fluids which add up to an additional 10% in injected weight to command higher prices.

Butcher Shop & Store

Our butcher ensures what you buy from our farm is handled correctly at all times, providing you with the fresh, clean, healthy foods you want for your family. Our butcher shop and store offer a wide range of fresh and frozen beef, chicken, pork, farm-fresh eggs, locally produced vegetables and more. In addition, our hundreds of fruit trees and on-site bee colony provide delicious, healthy fruits and honey.

Sustainable, Responsible Farming

With all the talk about sustainable and responsible practices coming from the mega-farm corporations that stock our nation’s grocers, how many invite you to tour their farm? Wm H. Buckley Farm employs sustainable, responsible practices in everything we do, many of which were used by farmers for centuries before detrimental changes were made to the industry in the 20th century in the name of efficiency. Come see what sustainable and responsible farming means to us, your food and our community.

Testimonials From Google and Facebook

Our daughter's wedding was held on this beautiful property and it was fabulous!  Gina and Mark were so incredibly accommodating!  We had a large group of family and attendants who all stayed the whole weekend in the big homes on the property and we were very comfortable.  The grounds and the set up for the wedding itself were gorgeous and the staff was very calm about having to switch up the layout because of last minute rain.  I would highly recommend this venue for your next event!

Anne D.

Buckley Farm was gracious enough to allow us to use their beautiful property for our wedding. The accommodations we received throughout the entire weekend far exceeded our expectations. The venue was beautiful and the houses that we stayed in were something out of a dream. Gina was somewhat of a day of coordinator and she was amazing. Anything we needed she made sure to provide. Thank you for such an amazing weekend, we will carry these memories forever. We highly recommend!
