In 1982 the Kiernan family took ownership of the 140-acre farmland. In the early years Kiernan Farm raised standard bred race horses and harvested hay. In 2005, a friend encouraged Marty and Thelma Kiernan to begin raising cattle and produce grass-fed beef. Now the second generation of the Kiernan Family is making its mark. In 2010 Shane, Ryan and Keri planted a vineyard and have been harvesting wine grapes for Hudson Valley wineries.
