Myer Farm Distillers makes vodka, flavored vodka, gin, white dogs, aged whiskies, and flavored whiskies. Established in 2012.
As a New York State Farm Distillery, we use International Certification Services certified organic grain from our own Myer Farm--one of the largest and oldest currently operating organic farms in the Northeast United States--to craft distill a range of spirits. At Myer Farm Distillers, we both plant the seed and produce the spirit.
Our ancestors Andrew Dunlap and his brother-in-law Joseph Wilson were, in 1789, the first to settle the Town of Ovid. Andrew Dunlap is credited with being the first to plow land in all of Seneca County. The Myer family has farmed in Ovid since as early as 1810, and have been working the land at our current location since 1868. John Myer is a 5th-generation farmer, has successfully nurtured and managed Myer Farm for over thirty-five years.John tends to a thousand acres of land, growing corn, soybeans, a range of wheat varieties, and various acres of triticale, spelt, barley, and oats. Joe Myer, president and Master Distiller, owned and operated a pure-bred Holstein stud bull husbandry business, is a seasoned dairy herdsman, and is an accomplished violinist and pianist, an award winning fine arts painter, & a published poet. Brothers Joe and John Myer draw from their deep roots & range of skills and talents to pioneer the marriage of farming and distilling with a commitment to develop world class spirits.
