Celebrating 111th Season of Farming at Kristy's Barn
Kristy’s Barn is a low spray-no spray farm that offers a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, U-pick on many crops, Summer Vegetable CSA and Fall Fruit CSA. Each season the farm changes: In the spring, asparagus is harvested and the greenhouse is full of beautiful plants to make all homes attractive and vegetable gardens productive. The summer begins with strawberries, and continues with black and red raspberries, juicy peaches, blueberries and a full-line of healthy vegetables. Fall is fun and delicious at Kristy’s Barn with award winning cider donuts, old-fashioned cider, U-Pick apples, pumpkins, weekend hayrides and a petting paddock.
This is Kristy’s Barn 111th farm season and third generation of Lemkas operating the farm. In 1910, Fred and Jessie Lemka established Glenwood Fruit Farm and Dairy. In 1955 their son and daughter-in-law, Ray and Sue Lemka, took over the farm and started Appleland Farms. Their farm market was on Routes 9&20 in East Greenbush in the former East Greenbush Methodist Church building. In 1993 their daughter and son-in-law, Kris and Ken Johnson, returned to the farm. In 2001 they moved the retail farm market back to the original farm. Over the years the farm’s mission has remained the same: to produce high-quality, healthy food using green farming practices, share the knowledge and love of farming and give back to the community.
