MackBrook Farms Porterhouse

While I was in Lake George this summer (2020), I looked up local farms on and found 3 that were close to where I was staying in downtown Lake George.

I called all 3 and was able to get through to one of them, MacBrook Farm (

How do you order? Just dial 1-518-838-6187. Talk to the farmer directly and tell them what time you can come to pick up the goods. In my case, it was a sweet woman who asked me where I am staying and made some great tourist recommendations.

Anyway, I came by the next morning at 7:00 am (I hate traffic) and picked up some meat.

Since I was staying at “Scottys Lakeside Resort (, which had communal grills, I was able to cook my first order on wood charcoal that I brought with me from NYC. The meat tasted so good that I decided to make a second visit to get some more meat.

Anyway, during my second order I asked for some Porterhouse steaks, and the farmer told me that they cut their Porterhouse steaks to the Italian “Fiorenina” size, which is roughly 2 inches.

The address:

312 McEachron Hill Rd, Argyle, NY 12809

And the Cheese Farm “Argyle Cheese Farm”:

990 Coach Road, Argyle, NY 12809

Anyway, here are some pictures:

Bonus – There was a cheese farm around the ‘block’. I tried their eggs, excellent!

With this order, shipping was only $9.95, I did not pay extra for the ‘Greencell’ packaging that is fully compostable. I want to see what their regular packaging is like and next time…

I am very excited about this order, after all, White Oak Pastures is the subject of the study showing that Regenerative Ranching is carbon negative!
