Kerber’s Farm is a Farmers' market and café owned by Nick Voulgaris III. It is located at West Pulaski Road, Huntington, New York.[1][2][3][4]

History

The farm's foundation was first laid by Peter Kerber and his wife Evelyn Kerber as a poultry business in 1941 in Huntington, NY, on Long Island Gold Coast. In 1946 the farm extended to a roadside farm stand and pie shop. In 2013, the farm fell into a state of disrepair. It was slated for development and was to be converted into a residential project. It was put up for sale. The farm was purchased by Nick Voulgaris III, a former resident of Long Island. The farm was closed for renovations on April 1, 2013.[1][3][5]

The farm reopened after renovations on August 31, 2013, as a fully operational café and market.[6]

Kerber’s Farm operates as a café. It offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The menu includes New England-style classic lobster rolls with fresh Maine lobsters, cheddar buttermilk biscuits, and coffee. The variety of pies include S’mores, Kerberry crumb, and traditional apple pie.[1][7]

It also functions as a Wholesaling business. It started its product line, including homemade jams, homemade apple pie kits, gourmet gift crates, and hand-poured candles. Kerber’s farm sells its products across 600 stores in the United States, including Williams-Sonoma, Inc. stores, Saks, Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, and Nordstrom.[1][3][7][6]
