Goods

Our online shop (coming soon) will offer curated items for tabletop and home that have been showcased in the barn during each harvest dinner. These goods range from farm fresh food products to the handcrafted work of NY-based artists & designers.

 

There is so much to this city – so many lives being lived and stories being told. There is a history to be discovered, discussed and cherished and a bright future of change to be nurtured.

Who We Are

 
 

It all started when…

Integer tempus, elit in laoreet posuere, lectus neque blandit dui, et placerat urna diam mattis orci. Fusce at massa nec sapien auctor gravida in in tellus. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Donec eget risus diam. Vivamus sit amet semper lacus, in mollis libero.

 
 

AN ONGOING COLLABORATION

 

For the past six years, Ravenwood has been an ongoing collaboration between Chris Lanier and Dana McClure as they seek creative ways to integrate their work, life and community between Brooklyn and Upstate New York. In 2010, the two bought an old 4-acre cow pasture in Olivebridge, NY down a windy road called Ravenwood. With hopes of one day turning the place into a small vegetable farm, they got started on the long slow challenge of transforming the property while balancing careers based in Manhattan. Meeting others who are also finding ways to strike their own balance between these two distinct worlds has inspired creative ways to integrate the two lifestyles. From this desire, Ravenwood was born – which began as a series of intimate dinners hosted in Brooklyn showcasing produce and small-batch products made on the farm. With the birth of their first baby in early 2014, Chris and Dana now find themselves more settled upstate and Ravenwood has become a physical space in which to push these ideas further.
