About

Sunny Hill Farm is an organically managed Farm in northern Broome County, NY.  In the Wade Family  since 1846, it is now operated by Niechelle Wade and her four children.

We raise  vegetables, berries, herbs and flowers, grass-fed beef, pork, lamb, assorted poultry and brown eggs.    We enjoy raising peacocks and make beautiful crafts from their feathers.  In 2013 we are adding fiber from our own flock of Romney sheep to our offerings.

We sell most of our product at local Farmers Markets.  We encourage folks to eat foods grown locally, and to learn to work with foods seasonally;  gather foods when they are fresh and plentiful, and use methods to preserve them for use all year.

After working in restaurants in the Binghamton area for 7 years, Niechelle learned that the best dishes depend on the best ingredients.  So she returned to the farm with the purpose to raise the highest quality meats, produce and dairy to enable cooks to create the very best meals.

    Happy to find your blog! Your approach and practice is in line with what we’re doing as well, and I love to find allies with whom to learn and chat. I have a question inspired from your garlic post, but Comments is not enabled on that page, so I’ll ask here.

    Our garlic has been growing beautifully since fall, and now much of it appears to be rotting!?!? Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Karin

    I’m happy to find y’all…We’re doing the same things, down here in North Carolina, and always enjoy connecting with folks to share and learn.

    Your garlic post inspired a question, and Comments is not enabled on that page, so I’m asking here. Our garlic is rotting!! Never had it happen. They’ve been growing beautifully all winter, and now are dying back and rotting. The elephant garlic is growing strongly still, but most of the other varieties stopped growing, didn’t produce scapes, and now the leaves are yellowing & browning, bulbs still underformed. Any ideas?
