1857 Spirits Barbers Farm Distillery Beginning in 1857, six generations of the Barber family have farmed in the heart of the Schoharie Valley and Barber's Farm Distillery produces exceptional vodka with ingredients not available to any other distillery. They use only potatoes grown on their family farm and water from their own spring to create 1857 Vodka of singular quality in the Barber family tradition of excellence. The Barbers are proud to be a Hand-Crafted New York State Distiller and part of Taste New York. The roadside farm stand is open year-round and adjacent is the tasting room which is open from Mother’s Day to Christmas. We encourage you to visit. As one visitor said “This is the best Farm Stand ever! I can get my “V’s”. Vegetables and Vodka!”
