Sustainable Agriculture + Food for Wellness
The vision of Lundy Farm began close to 100 years ago. In the 1920s, Irving Lundy started acquiring land in the Hudson Valley after a successful run as a restaurateur in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. At one point, he owned 5,405 acres – most of which is known as the Vernooy Kill State Park. The farm where our retreat center sits now is composed of horse and cow stables, a chicken coop, and many of the original stone buildings and bridges – including a fresh water spring.
We have a greenhouse next to a 4 acre regenerative organic farm, apple and pear orchard, laying hens, and a home for bees. Composting will happen on-site. We are breathing new life back into the farm, capturing and catapulting the vision and original intention of Mr. Lundy.
62 acre property nestled in a 30,000 acre state forest, situated in the Hudson Valley.
Yoga Vida Farms is located 2 hours upstate from downtown New York City, and 3 miles from our closest neighbor. The Vernooy Kill River runs the length of the property. We have a spring fed pond for swimming with rope swings, a cedar forest for meditative walks and an arborvitae courtyard for group gatherings. A blanket of stars covers over during bonfires and night hikes. Surrounded by forest, our land is completely private – expect an orchestra of animal sounds to put you to sleep.
A Main House, Guest House, Barn and more.
Lundy House contains multiple well-appointed communal spaces, living rooms, an open kitchen, sunroom, game room with billiards, music room with record player and fireplace, 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, and stone patios surrounding the house. The Guest House has 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a commercial kitchen, and the main communal dining room with a large fireplace and patio. The Barn encloses the movement and meditation space next to a workout room equipped with stationary cardio machines and free weights. A Salt Water Pool sits near the main house, tennis courts near the Guest House. The spring fed pond is a short walk from both houses, and perfect for swimming and wading in warmer months. A walkway surrounds the farm for easy viewing of vegetation. We have multiple firepits for evening fetes and food prep. Vintage bikes, collected at Brimfield Flea Market, are all over and provide the perfect way to get around the grounds.
