Hudson, NY serves as a commercial center to many burgeoning restaurateurs, musicians, artists and shop owners. But it’s also surrounded by the bounty of the Hudson Valley, from beautiful farms to popular hiking trails and more. For this reason, Hudson is often referred to as the “Downtown to the Upstate,” and it was right on the edge of this very downtown, overlooking the Hudson River and conveniently accessible by the nearby Amtrak station, that we fell in love with a building and a vision. Wm. Farmer and Sons and the Farmer family was born.
At first, owners Kristan and Kirby were just spending weekends visiting the Hudson Valley and Hudson. But as many NYC ex-pats can attest to, one too many visits can tip the scale from weekend delight and discovery into full time, all-out love. In 2013, with a baby on the way, they bought the historic 19th century Front Street building and began a two-year process of renovations in order to make the building what it has become today.
Wm. Farmer and Sons derives its name from a long-standing tradition of naming in the Farmer family, but is also a direct tribute to Kirby’s Father, who played an integral role in making the dream to open and run this restaurant, bar & guesthouse a reality. The “and Sons” part is brought upon by the next two generations of William Farmers: one son and one grandson. Accordingly, they all go by their middle names:
William Joseph Farmer (The OG)
William Kirby Farmer (Current Owner and Chef) and
William Wyeth Farmer (Farmer-in-Training)
