A Staple of the Rondout Valley - From Family Farm to a Must-Stop Destination
A staple of the Rondout Valley, Davenport's has evolved from a family farm providing corn and other simple wares into a must-stop destination for a taste of Ulster County living. Started in the 1840's by Isaiah Davenport, Davenport Farms has been a family affair ever since. A member of the Davenport family can be found working in every phase of the farm; from planting and harvesting, to managing the greenhouses, to selling at the always bustling farmstand. Rondout Sweet Corn from Davenport's is arguably the best tasting corn in Ulster County, NY if not the entire Hudson Valley, NY region! There's more than just corn however; including a large indoor/outdoor nursery containing flowers and vegetable plants, many of which are grown right on premises. The farmstand also contains a fully stocked market containing amazing baked goods still warm from the oven, as well as a nice selection of specialty foods and organic brands. On the go? Check out the cooler filled with delicious food-to-go made on premises, from healthy burritos to amazing bean salads.
