The most beautiful of concepts often starts small, humbly, honestly... but with great passion and vision. In the case of Blooming Hill Farm, it's inception came in the early eighties with a mid-stream life change for it's owner, Guy Jones, trading in a buttoned-up storefront law office in Albany New York for a small farm, work gloves, farming & foraging in the lower Hudson Valley. As they say, "organic farming - it's nothin' new, we built a nation on it." What came of this leap of faith, built on selling farmed & beautifully foraged produce at farmer's markets in New York City, forging relationships with well-known chefs and ultimately turning a passion into a new way for New Yorkers and subsquently, America to eat and gather.
We are privileged to have had the opportunity to talk with Austin Jones, son of Guy Jones who now runs business development and events, about the heart and history that brought Blooming Hill Farm to beautiful life.
