The Hollow is a direct reflection of my passion for food and a means to deepen my relationship and understanding of where it comes from.
We or our local family farm partners raise pastured chicken, grass fed beef, and hogs that we then transform (on our 40-acre family farm in our certified and inspected butcher shop) Into custom cut dry-aged beef, signature sausage, and truly farm-fresh poultry. As a 35 year professional chef, I look forward to having you along for the ride on the continuation of my culinary journey.
The Frerichs Family Farm
The Frerichs family has been instrumental in helping us understand farming, cattle management and all the intricacies involved with the process. We currently source 100% of our beef for our Signature dry aged line of beef directly through this family farm. Here’s a brief background on their familys operation.
The Frerichs Family Farm is located just two miles south of Lake Ontario’s shores in rural Wilson, NY. The farm was established in 1944 as a dairy farm, and transitioned to beef and certified organic crops in 2008 by its third generation of family owners. Calves are born and raised on the farm using rotational grazing on pastures and crops certified through the Northeast Organic Farming Association to ensure modern organic standards. We value land preservation, sustainable practices, and respect for our animals. We think it’s important to model conscientious practices to future generations, including our five children. We are thankful we can produce well-raised farm-to-table products for our family, neighbors and the local community.
