Our Story

New York Through + Through

We were founded in Manhattan in 1996 with a little cafe space near Union Square, still known simply as 71 Irving Place. Irving Farm’s founders soon realized that to deliver a truly craft-focused, hands-on approach to their love of coffee, we’d simply have to roast it, too.

We love New York — the country as well as the city — and so in 1999 we transformed a farm in the Hudson Valley into a roasting facility. The country roastery and the city cafe meet in our name: Irving Farm. Set at the foot of the Catskills and the Berkshires, our base in the historic Coleman Station district near the town of Millerton is the same region whose lush dairy farms were once the main supplier of milk to New York City in the 1800s.

Nowadays, Irving Farm supplies our carefully selected, handcrafted coffees to four beautiful cafes in that same metropolis, as well as our coffee house in Millerton, keeping the focus on sustainability and building direct relationships with the coffee farmers who grow the beautiful coffees that both the country and the city love so much.
