Bees Knees Cafe

The Bees Knees Cafe has closed for the winter.

Outdoor seating is no longer fun, and we just don’t have enough space in our cozy dining room to follow COVID regulations. Keep safe!

Farm to Table is all the rage, but have you experienced Farm and Table? The Bees Knees Café is nestled in an original 1820’s farmhouse in the middle of Heather Ridge Farm; surrounded by fields of grazing sheep, antique apple orchards, and hollows where our hogs forage for roots and nuts. At the Bees Knees Cafe chef Rob Handel pairs our meat, poultry, and eggs raised right on the farm with local farmed and foraged produce, and award winning local cheeses and dairy.







Fried Chicken Picnic

Voted one of the best in the Capital Region by the readers of Capital Region Living Magazine “Bestie Award!”

Join us for the best fried chicken in the Catskills, offered once a month at Heather Ridge Farm. Our pastured chicken, raised here on the farm, is dusted in a blend of spices and gluten free flours and fried until crisp. We serve it with a selection of farm made sauces and a changing show of seasonal sides. Eat like, and eat with, a farmer. Chat with farmers Carol and John and learn about life on the farm while enjoying your meal. Served under the stars weather permitting, or in our restored 1820s farmhouse. Dinner includes buffet of fried chicken, seasonal sides, and dessert, as well as farm made sodas and iced teas, freshly roasted fair trade organic coffee, and herbal teas.

Next (and last for the season) Fried Chicken Picnic Saturday, May 23, 2020,  from 5-7. Call for reservations 518-239-6234
