Want to be a part of our community? Want to contribute to our efforts to increase NY agriculture? Join us and we will thank you personally on Social Media and we will forever be grateful for your help in this endeavor.
One of the main crops we want to grow on our farm is Juniper to make our gin. In the fall of our second year, join the team at the farm to help us collect Juniper berries, eat some good food, and return to Black Button Distilling to watch the berries be transformed fresh from the farm into gin. At that time, our supporters will be the first to experience our state grown New York Gin.
Another important project for our farm is growing White Oak for bourbon barrel staves. For this reward, we will plant a tree in your honor as well as have a White Oak sapling for you to pick up at one of our Black Button tasting rooms. If you choose, we can plant both trees in your honor. Either way, you will know that you brought life to two mighty oak trees and some delicious bourbon.
A great way to plant a tree in memory of a loved one who enjoyed life, bourbon, or the outdoors.
Our Rochester Tasting Room will host a fully catered BBQ to celebrate the opening of the farm. We will grill out with bourbon barrel smoked meats and sides prepared with locally grown herbs. (And of course plenty of beverages to go around. )
So mark August 17th off on your calendar for a night to remember.
Only patient folks can make bourbon. At least that's what I am told. Well our first summer we will be harvesting some of the mighty oak trees that stand on our farm. We will quarter saw them, dry age them, raise those staves into barrels and age whiskey in our own oak barrels. When that barrel has aged its whiskey each 30 gallon barrel needs a new home, either as furniture, grilling wood, an art piece or to age beer in. whatever you decide is perfect because its your barrel. While its aging in our warehouse you will have your name emblazoned upon it for all to see.
The U.S. Forest Service has calculated that our forests account for 90% of all the carbon sequestered in the U.S. today! But our forest land is shrinking. For $500 we will plant enough trees to sequester an average persons carbon footprint for a whole year. Feel free to sign up for multiple years and we will plant the trees to cover you.
Forests are disappearing but we can turn that tide, right here in our own backyard.
Sponsor a bee hive and we will put your name on the bee hive and share the first harvest with you. Can you help us bring these pollinators to our farm and forever impact our community for the better? Make a lifelong difference all while enjoying your own supply of organic honey.
You and 25 of your friends will take over our Rochester tasting room. We will talk locally made bourbon and gin and show you how we are going to grow our own ingredients for them. We will eat like kings and swagger like pirates at your private party, catered by Master Distiller Jason Barrett.
