Hi! We are Dan & Kimmy Rivera and we are bringing an old farm back to life in Willsboro. We are Hudson Valley natives and first generation farmers who were lucky to find prime agricultural land in the Champlain Valley. We bought the Baker Farm in 2014 and have been working hard to restore the farm back to its former glory ever since.
Our first operation involved constructing a wood-fired bread oven and farm store in a former garage. Our hand-made, wood-fired artisan breads and baked goods use only local and organic grains and ingredients. Living in a community of "real bread" enthusiasts who appreciate a hand-crafted, traditionally made loaf of bread with simple ingredients, they are helping us fund the way toward further farm and barn restoration efforts.
Triple Green Jade Farm consists of 80 acres of land that border the picturesque Boquet River. Our silty, clay loam soils are well-suited for legumes and pasture grasses where we currently grow and cut hay. Our next operation involves increasing the soil health of our pastures with a grass-based micro-dairy. In our barn we have one of the first modern milking parlors to have been installed in Essex County. We plan to graze Jersey cows and Icelandic sheep and make full use of the barn once restored. You can follow our progress at our website www.triplegreenjadefarm.com, on Facebook, and on Instagram.
