Who we are
Reber Rock Farm is an 88-acre draft powered farm on the southern edge of the Reber Valley in Essex, NY. Using our draft horses for the majority of the field preparation, cultivation and harvesting we produce maple syrup, grassfed beef, pasture raised pork, chicken and turkey, herbs, Thanksgiving vegetables, and a variety of value added products including sunflower oil, popcorn and cornmeal, tomato sauce, dilly scapes and soap.
Racey Bingham and Nathan Henderson, Reber Rock Farm's co-managers with Chad, have been farming together for two years in Essex, and are leasing-to-own Reber Rock Farm from the Open Space Institute. To make this crazy small-scale diversified farming thing work, we also wear other hats. Racey consults for international development organizations on agricultural and rural development issues.
Chad Vogel, one of Reber Rock Farm's co-managers, is a Natural Woodsman, horse trainer and farmer. He and his horses Fern and Arch are an integral part of Reber Rock Farm's future. Chad is a Natural Woodsman, experienced in forrest management and draftwood production. Chad and Nathan train draft horses and ponies.
