Wm. Farmer & Sons – Hudson, N. Y.

Last week, Stanley and I had dinner with our friend Victor at Wm. Farmer & Sons.  It is yet another “farm to table” restaurant, and it has earned a well-deserved reputation for excellent food, a fine addition to the ever-growing Hudson restaurant scene.

Starters we had were beet salad, octopus, and rabbit pate, and main courses were chicken pot pie and duck breast.  We liked everything.   It’s especially nice that they use chicken thighs, giving the pot pie a much richer flavor.  The duck was perfectly done medium-rare.

The beer list shows a lot of thought. We very much enjoyed the porter from Suarez Family Brewery in Livingston.

By the way, Wm. Farmer & Sons also rents rooms, and is just two blocks from the station.


More Baby Lambs – One in a sweater

This has become an annual thing.  I’ve been posting photos of the lambs at a nearby farm for the last two years.  The first year they were born in very cold weather and were all wearing sweaters.  Last year it was already warm and no sweaters were seen. This year, only one had a sweater.  Perhaps he had a cold, or just wanted to be chic.
