Heather Ridge Farm in Preston Hollow, New York, is a small grass-fed farm that raises beef, poultry, lambs, goats, and bees; they sell their products in their farm store and in their acclaimed Bees Knees Café (where they also serve vegetables from Stoneledge Farm. Owner Carol Clement says, ““We believe a grass-based farm is better for the animals, better for the farmers, better for the environment and better for the consumers. Our animals are treated humanely, some would say a tad pampered. Their time on this planet is brief, and their sacrifice total. Why not make it so they want for nothing?”

In addition to food products, Heather Ridge sells every part of the animals—sheepskins, wool made into socks and mittens, candles and soaps made from their beehives’ honey. They also carry a variety of crafts from local artisans, For more information, or to pre-order, see their website: http://heather-ridge-farm.com

Heather Ridge received a nice writeup in the New York Times a few years ago; see it here: http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/21/travel/21bites-roundup.html?_r=0

Millennium Blend We’re all aware how important nutrition is in the prevention and treatment of disease, especially those where poor, overindulgent diets and food toxins are a factor.

What you may not know is that most of the protein shakes designed to support your health are as loaded with sugar, fats, chemicals and biologically inert “nutrients” as the diet you’re trying to improve.
Millenium Blend is shaking up the nutritional supplement industry with a line of high end nutritional products created by Dr. Nelson Stone, a cancer specialist from Mount Sinai. Our products include two different types of protein powder, Metabolic Formula for weight management and Fortifying Formula for a protein supplement, and the Detoxifying Formula to help cleanse your body of toxins.
From athletes in training, to post-surgical bariatric patients, to undernourished seniors, to the exhausted dieter sick of their yo-yo diet—Millenium Blend has a product for you.
