Welcome to Lazy Crazy Acres

Hello Friends!

Karen in the barn

Thanks for stopping by our little website! We’re a small farm and micro-creamery located New York’s beautiful Catskill Mountains. We make farm fresh, “cow to cone” gelato starting straight from the cow in the mornings. The milk  is raw and warm and still steaming when we begin the mix process in our little creamery in our historic barn. Check out the creamery section of the site to find out more about all the things we do (and don’t do) that make our farmstead gelato so unique and delicious.

MAY 2014 FAQ’s!

Are you open to the public? Not currently. We are planning to open the farm up to visitors July 2014 for tours, gelato and farm fresh pizza! During the month of June you can start to click on the calendar tab to see when the farm will be open. We are finishing up a Kickstarter campaign at the end of May and hope to be able to fund the building of a pavilion where we can host folks. Visit our Where to Buy page to see what stores carry our gelato.

Did you say Kickstarter? We did. Our Kickstarter campaign runs through the morning of May 25, 2014. We are hoping to raise funds to build a pavilion off the back of our historic barn. Here we will be able to host folks for pizza, gelato and educational events. We’ll also be able to better store the hay we make for winter feed. Check out our video on Kickstarter here. 

Can we just swing on by? Oh we wish we could say yes! But we are are two man outfit handling farm work, creamery work, an 8 month old who is just starting to crawl (yowser!), office work, marketing, deliveries, etc. Please come on out July 4th for the 2nd Annual Travel the Milky Way Creamery Tour or check our calendar as we get into June for dates when the farm will be open. Following us on Facebook is a great way to keep up with what we’re up to. Click here for more info on the Milky Way.

Where are you located? We’re up in the Dry Brook Valley just outside Arkville. We’re on the back side of Belleayre Ski Center.
