PIES, APPLES AND PUMPKINS
At the Caldwell House we try to serve locally made and grown products, such as maple syrup from Fishkill, French Toast bread and chocolates from Newburgh. We even gather blueberries from our garden. Homegrown fruits and vegetables, fresh apple cider homemade donuts and pumpkins are available at nearby Roe’s Orchards in their red barn in Chester. They have been baking pies since before the Civil War. While they don’t have a website they can be located about six miles west of our bed and breakfast past Washingtonville on Route 94. 845-469-4724 is their phone number. Oh, I can smell the aroma from their pies and taste their juicy fruit! There are many u-pick farms are in the area. Call us for some names.
