Buzzard Crest Vineyards, Penn Yan, NY

Family Owned Vineyard, Est. 1971

About Buzzard Crest Vineyards

Since 1971, Ken and Eileen Farnan have been growing organic grapes at their small vineyard in the Finger Lakes region of New York and making wine from them at nearby Barrington Cellars. In addition to wine grapes, the Farnans grow spectacular Concord, Mars, Niagara, Lakemont and Canadice varieties. Baldor picks up grapes from the vineyard every week and brings them downstate for our customers to enjoy while still at peak flavor, in peak condition.

Greenmarket groupies love to debate which farmer has the plushest plums, the hottest habaneros or the finest fennel. But when it comes to grapes, there’s no contest: The Blue Ribbon goes to Ken and Eileen Farnan of Buzzard Crest Vineyards, who grow grapes and grapes alone on their 37 acres way north in the Finger Lakes.
