Turtle Island, a name given to mother earth by our Native American ancestors. They conceived our planet as an Island carried on the back of a great turtle swimming throughout the universe. The Cafe opened under new management May 1, 2004. Their goal is to provide fabulous food in a casual and friendly environment. Conveniently located in the heart of Willsboro, Turtle Island Cafe is only minutes away from both Lake Champlain and the Essex Ferry Dock.
Here at Turtle Island Cafe we believe that everyone has a basic right to gastronomic pleasure and consequently the responsibility to protect the heritage of the food, tradition, and culture that make this pleasure possible. Our thoughts are based upon the concept of eco-gastronomy - recognition of the strong connections between plate and planet. Food should be good, clean and fair. The food that we eat should taste good; it should be produced in a clean way that does not harm the environment, animal welfare or our health; and food producers should receive fair compensation for their work. We consider ourselves co-producers because by being informed about how and where our food is produced and actively supporting those who produce it, we become part and partner in the production process. Here at Turtle Island Cafe we make every effort to use local farmers that practice sustainable methods and with our same beliefs for their produce, cheeses, dairy and meats. Our fish and seafood purchased is only wild caught and of sustainable species. Remember we will become what we eat.
We are a family run farm in Burke, New York. We started planting northern climate fruit trees in 2010 from the St. Lawrence Nurseries in Potsdam, NY. Our operation is currently very small but growing steadily. There is limited fruit supply at this time. Please call if coming a great distance. We will finish planting our last trees here in Burke this year.
We have 77 varieties of apples, 6 varieties of pears, 8 of plums, 5 tart cherry and the Adirondack Gold apricot. We are practicing limited chemical spray with a dormant oil prior to bud break for early application and then using Surround and Neem oil as our pest protection. The farm has a large flock of "retired" chickens that are patrolling the orchard. The "orchard queens" inspect for bugs, larvae, and grubs on a daily basis. They are doing a remarkable job. We have eggs for sale when available.
We planted 12 rows of rhubarb in 2011 and wholesale this crop. We also have currants, garlic and veggies in season. Squash and pumpkins complete the season.
We are a young farm collaborative devoted to grow and sell high quality specialty produce year round. Our main staples are micro greens and shoots.

I build custom furniture and cabinets for any room in the house as well as lazy susans and picture frames. I also do furniture repair. I build rustic furniture with live edge slabs for the tops and peeled cedar, yellow birch and maple legs. I use big burls for tables and any size burls for lamps. The lazy susans are made from most any hardwood and some are made with birch bark.

A family farm practicing sustainable & environmentally conscious agriculture focused on the production of livestock raised in a humane & natural manner.
Nestled in the hills of Saranac, New York, Woven Meadows is the pasture-based sustainable farm of the Vaillancourt and Jackson families. We practice grass-based pasturing of our cows and organic-fed chickens and poultry, natural beekeeping, and chemical-free gardening and growing of vegetables, herbs, fruit, and flowers. We have a holistic perspective, seeing both all aspects of the farm as interconnected as well as the farm as interrelated with the wider community and environment. Everything is "woven" together, you might say! Throughout our farming activities, we strive for ecological and social sustainability, by nourishing individuals and families, fostering community, and being stewards to our land and livestock. We love having visitors, and have products and subscription-style CSA programs available from the farm. Contact us to visit our woven meadows.
