David Bowie is said to have his ashes scattered at his secret home just outside of Woodstock, where it is reported that he spent most of his final days with his family. The star wanted no funeral or memorial, leaving his most recent album ‘Blackstar’ as his final goodbye to fans, after losing his long battle with cancer on January 10th, 2016.

Friends say that David Bowie was happiest on his woodland compound in the Catskill Mountains. Guitarist Gerry Leonard, who recorded 3 albums with Bowie, said that Woodstock was where Bowie would spend time with his family and “recharge.” It is here that the music icon’s ashes will be spread with only close family in attendance- keeping the location of his Woodstock retreat a secret still, as it always has been.

tractorFarms have always been a part of the culture and history here in Ulster County NY. It's home to the 2nd oldest farm in NY State, (Accord's Saunderskill Farms, see below) and arguably the best tasting corn in the Hudson Valley.  Now that spring is in full bloom, the Ulster County farmer's markets will be in full swing! Our cravings started with the opening of Davenport Farmstand in Stone Ridge, NY and like many others we've been waiting for this time of year.  Residents of Ulster County can now enjoy fresh and nutritious food, grown on the farm and brought straight to their dinner tables. The abundance of fresh (and affordable!) produce from the spring through the fall is yet another reason why Ulster County real estate is so desirable among buyers.
