Located in the heart of New York's Finger Lakes Region, Crosswinds Farm & Creamery is home to 125 Brown Swiss dairy cows, crossbred pigs, a flock of several breeds of egg-laying chickens, and owner and cheesemaker Sarah Van Orden.
Sarah is a 12th generation farmer who uses the skills & knowledge learned growing up on her family’s 300-year-old farm in the Hudson Valley, blended with modern science and technology learned during her years at Cornell and in the field, to keep Crosswinds growing. Animal welfare, green farming practices, and community building are staples of the Crosswinds vision. The entire herd has been born & raised on their farm, and most of their cow "families" have been with them for 6 or 7 generations. The comfort and health of all the animals is their top priority. Crosswinds Farm aims to connect people to where their food comes from and be part of the fabric of a vibrant local community and economy.
