Ravenwood Farmshop is a hybrid space that integrates a farm stand, small cafe and design showcase located in Kerhonkson, NY. Our business is family-run in an intimate barn setting that serves as a gathering hub for the local community and for those who are visiting our region. Careful selections for the space, from the growers + makers we work with, to the sights/smells/sounds/tastes we offer our guests, are all in an effort to provide a relaxed, retreat-like environment in which to celebrate the distinct seasonality of the Hudson Valley.

We are looking for self-motivated, creative individuals who are cheerful by nature. Ideal applicants will have some hospitality and/or retail experience, but it is equally important to find team members that are confident, friendly and outgoing with a positive can-do attitude.
