Kerber’s Expands Into Manhattan

Kerber’s Farm opens a new café and shop on Bleecker Street in the heart of the
historic West Village.
February 6, 2023
Following the success of its beloved Long Island location, the Kerber’s Farm brand is expanding
with its second retail store. In line with the company’s mission of preservation and restoration,
the new location features reclaimed wooden beams, a 1930’s cast-iron porcelain farm sink,
salvaged tiles, vintage white Carrera marble tabletops and traditional wainscotting.
The 1400 square foot store is nestled amongst Manhattan’s “food royalty” including Murray’s
Cheese Shop, Faicco’s Italian Specialties, Ottomanelli & Sons, John’s Pizzeria, Tacombi, and
Rocco’s Bakery.
The new location features the farm’s signature homemade items from farm-fresh recipes found
its namesake Rizzoli cookbook such as delicious homemade baked goods including pies, scones,
muffins, and its delectable cheddar buttermilk biscuit egg sandwiches that have made Kerber’s
famous. In the café, guests can enjoy the freshly brewed coffee, lunch sandwiches, savory pie
pockets, mac & cheese pies, as well as garden vegetables and eggs from the Long Island farm.
The store will also offer its handmade candles, honey, homemade jams and gift crates.
“It has been a dream of mine to bring the charm and nostalgia of Kerber’s Farm and our
signature homemade pies and favorite dishes to New York City,” said Kerber’s Farm owner Nick
Vouglaris III. “Plus, it’s great that I can now walk to work as I live a few blocks away. This
neighborhood is my home, and I am delighted to bring my business here too.”
As part of the farm’s launch in New York City, you may spot its vintage Land Rover parked out
front of the store offering free samples of pies, brownies, cookies and hot chocolate.

Celebrity fans include Martha Stewart, Rachael Ray, Whoopi Goldberg, and Oprah Winfrey.
About Kerber’s Farm
Kerber’s Farm is a historic farm and market that dates to the 1940’s located in Huntington, Long
Island, New York. The farm and market have been a popular destination for generations for its
tasty baked goods, organic vegetables, fresh eggs, and honey.
In 2013, the farm and store were abandoned and slated for development until author and
entrepreneur Nick Voulgaris III made it a passion to save the farm he frequented as a child.
Voulgaris, who has had a long career in hospitality and preservation, was able to purchase the
property and restored the gardens, reopened the store, and cultivated a loyal following. The
property, which has 12 beehives, vegetable gardens, laying hens, ducks, pigs, sheep and goats,
is open to the public, and offers several AirBnB residences for visitors to spend the night.
Kerber’s Farm also opened a farming education school at the Long Island farm to teach
students the importance of sustainability, organic farming, and healthy eating habits.
