The Lucky Dog Farm Store is located in a circa 1870 classic general store building in the heart of the hamlet of Hamden, NY.
As soon as you walk in, you get a little bit of the feeling of going back in time as all your senses are immediately awakened.
Opened in 2001, the store carries a wide variety of bulk and organic foods, with an emphasis on locally or regionally produced products. Check out our selection of area cheeses including: Harpersfield Cheese, an incredible Tilsit style cheese, Sherman Hill Farmstead’s fresh, creamy chevre, or a feta from Painted Goat Farm that has to be one of the best in the world.
You’ll also find local maple products, honey, dairy products, jams & jellies, handmade soaps, beauty products, and much more. At Lucky Dog we believe strongly in supporting local businesses — thereby keeping more money flowing in our local/regional economy — as much as possible. Our businesses support other businesses.

Don’t feel like cooking? Take home some of our homemade mac and cheese, soup, or a rich, creamy quiche prepared in our cafe. We also bake fresh bread daily and always have a variety of tempting homemade baked goods.
But that’s not all – Lucky Dog also sells antiques and collectibles and has a sizable collection of vintage clothing dating from the Victorian era to the 1970s. These items can be found throughout the store and up the yellow staircase that beckons you from the back of the store.
OK, so maybe you’re wondering how vintage clothes and antiques and collectibles fit in with organic, sustainable farming and food? Well it’s really not that much of a leap. Sustainable is the key word. Vintage clothing and furnishings add unique style to your person and your abode and they are recycled! Precious resources and energy aren’t used to create them so buying vintage is one
more way to support our planet.
Come and visit soon, it is always worth the trip!
