With nothing more than a bag of flour and a dream, Denise & Cheryl's grandfather came to this country and established one of the best bakeries in upstate New York. Their father was born in that very bakery, and with confection flowing in his veins he supplied the breadsand pastries to the great hotels of the Catskills during the borscht belt era.
Today, the legacy lives on as Aunt Nenee's (The Bakers Daughter's) present to you an assortment of cookies and other treats that are best enjoyed with a cup of tea. From their hearts to your stomachs, please enjoy their little taste of the Catskills.
Aunt Nenee's offers a wide variety of cookies, scones, fruit pasties, shortbread pies, tea breads, soda breads, and jams. They source farm fresh eggs, milk and local fruit.

The Grey Mouse Farm is a real, working family farm located off Route 32 in Saugerties. The little mice, as we like to refer to ourselves, work year-round to grow, package and market the delicious preserves, garlics, pickles, all-fruit spreads, mustards, all-purpose sauces and mustards.
The products are made the old fashioned way — with love and care (no chemicals, additives or preservatives). To ensure freshness, everything is made in small batch production canning exactly what the orchards produces each season. The number of cases are not extended with fillers like corn syrup or other ingredients.
The mother/daughter team, Sallie and Kathy Kreda, began this business after a banner season which produced more fruits and vegetables than they could eat or give away. A gourmet cook, Sallie began to win local festivals. These award winning products are the result. Sallie is now retired but the tradition continues with Kathy and the micettes!

Harpersfield Cheese, made at Brovetto’s Dairy Farm, is aged naturally and crafted by using milk from our cow dairy located in the northern Catskills of Delaware County. Our herd has been bred over the past 40-plus years to provide a proper balance of natural nutrients to make our unique cheese.
“Each step in the cheese making process is carefully crafted by the cheese maker. The cheese is aged in an underground area where the temperature and humidity are controlled until the full flavor is developed. During the aging period, each wheel is washed and examined with care.
“When Harpersfield was frontier, newcomers were put up in the best houses until another could be built for them...all hands helping. Over 250 years later, the Brovettos of Harpersfield built their own farmstead cheese house, with friends and neighbors at their side...all hands helping. Experience cheese made the Old World way.”
A rural animal shelter caring for and housing dogs and cats that are either given up or lost. We educate our community, defend the meekest, teach humane treatment for all living creatures, foster a compassion for the weakest, heal the broken trust of the abused, and link the lonely with a four-legged companion. Whether it’s an unwanted German Shepherd or a tabby whose guardian has passed away—no matter what the reason, we take them.
And we will until we educate every person in our community that spaying and neutering animals is the only humane thing to do, that owning a pet is a commitment for the lifetime of the pet, that abuse or neglect is unconscionable and illegal. And we will try to match every adoptable pet with a loving home. Every day. As we continue our journey of a Heart.

Kerrs Creek Distillery is a small family owned and operated distillery, highlighting products made from ingredients sourced in NY State. The story of Kerrs Creek Distillery began almost 100 years ago, in Harvard, NY, where our great-great-grandfather and his son decided to distill bootleg alcohol to ship down to the Big City. Packed in pianos, the bottles were moved, undetected, and delivered to countless speakeasies. For several years during Prohibition, father and son refined their craft, taking pride in what they were creating. It is that same care and pride that we at Kerrs Creek Distillery embrace today.
KyMar Farm Winery and Distillery is a NYS licensed farm winery and farm distillery. We take great pride in bringing local agricultural products from the field to the glass. All of our products' principal ingredients are either grown by us on site, or by other New York farmers in our region.
Each batch is fermented, distilled, aged, blended and bottled in Charlotteville.
We will have 3 spirits at the market this year and an apple wine coming out summer 2014.
Schoharie Mapple Jack is an apple brandy aged in oak barrels at 100 proof then blended with pure maple syrup and water to be bottled at 65 proof.
Schoharie Shine is our tribute to southern moonshiners. We start with sweet Sorghum molasses and blend with water for cold fermentation. We then distill it 3 times for purity and smoothness not usually associated with moonshine. Schoharie Shine is bottled at 90 proof and makes an excellent base for mixed drinks.
Schoharie Eau De Vie De Pomme is an apple brandy with a kick. Distilled twice and bottled immediately to capture the aroma and flavor of the apple. A perfect aperitif or digestif.
