"Although like many locals, I like the Hudson Farmers Market, my first stop on Saturday morning is Holmquest Farms, which is family owned and has a great selection of produce in season (at half the price of the farmers market) and a huge greenhouse for plants in the spring and early summer. They specialize in geraniums and hanging baskets."

Notes from Holmquest Farms & Greenhouse:
2013 begins Holmquest Farms’ 70th year in business. As fourth generation family farmers, we are to proud to continue the tradition that our great grandfather began in 1944. Today the farm is owned and operated by Terri and Tom Holmes, and it is comprised of over 500 acres. The greenhouses alone have a combined growing and sales area of over 30,000 square feet! Here’s the story … In 1944, Tom’s grandfather Richard Holmes Jr. bought the property that had been Evan’s Brewery since the early 1900s. During that time New York State began to require that all cow herds have a registered name, so the name Holmquest was born. On the property Richard Jr. created a cow farm which he ran with his wife, Tom’s grandmother, Ellenbelle. In 1959, Tom’s dad Richard Holmes III took over the farm. Tom’s dad ran the farm with his mom Elaine and together, they turned Holmquest Farms into a crop farm and opened the first greenhouses. Tom and Terri met in 1994, and in 1997 Tom took over the farm. Tom and Terri were married in 1998 and in 1999 they took over greenhouse operation in addition to farm operation. Along with their son Thomas, Tom and Terri run the farm. Planting, fertilization and harvest machinery are continuously upgraded and in 2012 solar panels were installed, providing power for the entire farm. The Holmes keep up with technology to help them with the challenging task of running a family farm. In 2013, work was completed on a new 15,000 square foot greenhouse that includes automated temperature control and zoned irrigation. An extensive water recovery system catches the rainwater and the flow from the flood tables in the greenhouse, returning it for greenhouse for watering. Not only green – but GREEN!
