From the Boogie inbox:

I was so happy to speak with owner, Ms. Elizabeth Ryan, who founded Breezy Hill Orchard and Cider Mill (in 1949) about her newest shop.  She’s one of the founding farmers of the Greenmarket farmers market in New York City – present at most every market around, including Union Square and the New Amsterdam Market at South Street Seaport. Ms. Ryan is deeply passionate about her diverse crops (both heirloom and traditional varieties of apples, peaches, plums, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, pears and cranberries)… All grown by sustainable, ecological agriculture methods.

The Breezy Hill Orchard facility is actually located in the Hudson Valley.  You can find out more and stay updated on events and such by joining their Facebook fan page.
