Adams Fairacre Farms shared information about how the business got started.

It all started in 1919 with Ralph and Mary Adams, they purchased farmland in Poughkeepsie, NY. With 50 acres of farmland, they worked by selling produce, etc. It wasn't until the 1930s that Adams Fairacre Farms became a successful farmland in the Hudson Valley.

In the beginning, Adams Fairacre Farms explained that they were selling vegetables and fruits. It wasn't until their loyal customers started putting in requests that they had an idea. The request for meat and cheese then led to the idea of a local deli as well.

I enjoy visiting Adams Fairacre Farms locations to walk through their calm Garden Center, uplifting gift shop, and shopping for healthier food options too.
