Welcome to Pleasant View Farm!
Nestled in the beautiful Hudson Valley is the most wonderful place on earth: Pleasant View Farm. The farm house and land have been in my family for generations. Now my grandpa runs a pet-friendly bed & breakfast and my mom is the chef at our farm-to-table restaurant. Farm-to-table means we grow many of the ingredients right here on our land… + Read more. What we can’t grow ourselves, we get from other farms in the area. Mom cooks with what's in season so that everything is super fresh and totally delicious.

New Year, New Traditions
Running a bustling B&B and farm-to-table restaurant is exciting, but it also means that my family has to work hard to make time to really connect with each other.

I have a million more ideas for decorations, and once the space is finished, I can’t wait to try them out. But it will be a while before the “party barn” is ready. There’s still a lot of work to be done.
