About Our Farm


Cowberry Crossing Farm is located on fifty acres in Claverack, New York.

The farmers, Richard & Cecile Harrison are committed to local, humane, sustainable farming and the farm is certified both organic and biodynamic. The small traditional family-run farm has a large and varied vegetable garden providing especially high quality produce for our customers. Animals found on the farm include chickens, ducks, turkeys, rabbits, sheep, pigs, cows, horses, cats, bees, and Glory, the border collie. All are fed organic feed and spend their days roaming freely on the farm. We are happy to answer any questions about the farm and welcome visitors. The children, Grace and Reese, share in the work and fun on the farm and just might be your tour guides!

–About Us–

Richard and Cecile Harrison moved to Claverack in 2003 from California in search of rural living for their family.  Community, living in harmony with nature, and a place to farm were the couple’s top priorities.  Richard grew up on a small farm in Sussex, England and Cecile was raised in a rural area of California very focused on horses.  By farming with wholistic organic and biodynamic farming practices, they hope to support the earth’s well-being as well as offer food with higher nutritional value and superior taste.
