On a hilltop in the historic Hudson Valley, this working farm is home to twenty award-winning alpacas and two friendly Icelandic horses. Organic vegetable gardens, fruit trees, berry bushes and flowers, dot the hillside alongside the animals' pastures. Several locations on this property are perfect for an outdoor ceremony and an intimate tented or barn reception. Just 40 miles north of New York City and close to everything that is charming about this area, this farm is truly a unique location.
