It’s very good to be back here, and I am so pleased to see you here also. Welcome back or just welcome if you have never visited before. Along with being a place where I share my art & writing, this is now the home for my farm & cooking adventures, named for our land, the Alchemy Farm, and food line, Alchemy Farmhouse. I hope you enjoy the new turn I am taking, and these updates.

A little background on the name Alchemy Farmhouse…

Ever since I was a child, I have loved the ideas of alchemy–the mixing of spirituality, religion, science and nature. Taking something seemingly ordinary and transmuting it to something extraordinary fascinates me. After I became involved with cooking & growing food 6 years ago, I realized what incredible alchemy existed there: a seed to a giant pumpkin! Gorgeous blueberries to amazing jam! Thus the name seemed simple, because our home, the Alchemy farmhouse is where we take nature’s gifts grown with sun, water, and a bit of hard work and watch them turn into something wonderful. Our area of New York is rife with abundant farms and exciting food movements. Feel free to contact us for information on planning a visit to the Hudson Valley and check the blogroll for local groups we so love!

Check back often for new photos as things ripen, and recipes and finished food photos as I catch back up with the site.
