Nestled between Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains in
Upstate New York, the Lewis Family Farm is a testament to the vision and
determination of its creators, Sandy and Barbara Lewis. This vast 1100+ acre
farm and cattle ranch is a thriving organic ecosystem where sustainable practices harmonize with the land, fostering a balance necessary for a healthier environment.
In an increasingly troubled world, this is truly a sanctuary, free from rising oceans, shrinking shorelines, and most natural disasters that regularly occur in other parts of the world. The commanding 360 degree views stretch from the Adirondack Mountains in the west and east across to the Green Mountains of VT.
The Lewises have channeled wisdom, respect for soils, and determination into crafting a property that seamlessly blends functionality with aesthetic appeal. Carefully planned infrastructure, including barns, storage facilities, and living quarters, ensures that every aspect of the farm is optimized for efficiency and prepared for the future. The cattle are hardy for our winters and only eat organic grass. There are no antibiotics in the water here. The commitment to sustainable agriculture ensures that the land remains bountiful for generations.
Lewis Family Farm is iconic. Incredibly beautiful, strategic, and free of impurities… This unique property sets a new standard, proving that responsible land management is not just an ideal but a practice deeply ingrained in the farm’s ethos. The wealth of on-site assets includes a maple sugarbush, two rock quarries, miles of electric fencing, tile drained pastures, abundant clean water from 10 wells, and a purposely built pond with a dry hydrant readily available for local fire departments.

The Lewis Family Farm is a legacy waiting to be embraced by those who share the same passion for organic living and the
boundless beauty of the North Country.
