Little Play Village, Animal Visiting and Our Country
|Lawrence Farms Orchards
is a family owned and operated
||working fruit and
vegetable farm in the beautiful Hudson Valley.
Our family has been involved in agriculture
since our great-grandfather came to this area
from England in 1892.
At present we have three generations involved
| working various aspects of the family farm.
We have been doing "Pick
Your Own" fruits and vegetables for over 30
years. We are well known for the diversity of the
crops we grow, our scenic location, our "show chickens",
playful goats, and the friendly family atmosphere
at our farm. Our newest additions are the "Little
Village" and hay bale maze. The quaint "Little Village"
is reminiscent of an old-fashioned New England farm
town. Customers enjoy it's charm as they are carried
away to that simpler time and place of long ago.
Customers also love to climb aboard our horse-drawn
carriage (weekends only) for a
relaxing ride around the farm. We also offer delicious
refreshments, including home-made doughnuts and
local dairy farm ice cream.

Deliciously Decadent Recipe Below
Use at your own risk

* 2 cups flour
* 1/4 cup sugar
* 4 teaspoons baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* few grains of nutmeg
* 1 egg, well beaten
* 6 tablespoons cold butter
* 1/3 cup milk
* 4 cups fresh strawberries,
* 3/4 cup brown sugar
* whipped cream
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Sift. Work in butter with pastry blender or fingertips; add egg and milk. Mix just until dough is moist. Turn dough into a buttered and floured 8 or 9-inch round cake pan and pat into shape. Bake for about 15 to 20 minutes in a 400° oven, or until golden brown. Test with a toothpick inserted in the center. If it comes out with dough clinging to it, lower the heat to 350° and bake about 5 more minutes. Remove from the pan and split horizontally with a serrated knife. Butter the cut side of both layers. Put layers together with strawberries and their juice between the layers and on top. Garnish with several whole berries and serve with whipped cream.
To Prepare Strawberries:
Prepare strawberries an hour or two before serving. Rinse, hull, and slice 1 quart of fresh strawberries, leaving 8 to 12 whole for garnishing. Place the sliced berries in a bowl; add 3/4 cup brown sugar and let stand for at least 1 hour at room temperature.
