The Frenay/Modisher family–Craig, Erica and their children Rowan and Phoenix–are the current stewards of Shelterbelt Farm, which we officially launched as a farm business in 2010. We’re located in the scenic rolling hills of Caroline, NY, in the Finger Lakes region just southeast of Ithaca. The farm is home to three generations of Modishers, and cattle, sheep, chickens, geese, dogs, bees, fruit trees, and vegetables.
We farm because we are passionate about regenerating the health of our community and this land, by building soil and plant diversity, providing a low-stress, happy life for our animals, and producing nourishing pasture-raised meats. We believe that all-natural production practices, great taste and quality, and environmental stewardship go hand-in-hand.
Shelterbelt Farm is located in Caroline, NY, about 9 miles southeast of Ithaca. Our farm is on Creamery Road, which begins just across from the Caroline Town Hall, in Slaterville Springs, off Rte 79. Creamery Road is short; just over a mile long. Our official address is 200 Creamery Road, and you can most easily find us at the 90 degree bend in the road. Our driveway is immediately downhill and on the inside of that turn.
