About Adams

In 1919, Ralph and Mary Adams purchased 50 acres of farmland in Poughkeepsie, New York. They worked the land, selling fresh produce to area retailers from a farmstand. By 1933 they had four children and a successful farmstand. Adams Fairacre Farms was born. At first, they were selling fruits and vegetables, but soon their customers requested cheesemeats and then deli. It was a slow, natural progression. Because they grew their own produce and had access to farm supplies, people started asking for fertilizer and plants from Adams, leading to the addition of a garden center. Today, all Adams stores in Poughkeepsie, Kingston, Newburgh, Wappinger and Middletown offer a Garden Center and as well as grocery shopping.

There’s so much to explore at all the Adams stores. Our Flower Shops create beautiful arrangements with many hard-to-find flowers and the Houseplant departments carry a large array of indoor and tropical plants. Adams Kitchens provide fresh salad bars, soup stations and hot food bars stocked daily with homemade food to go as well as extensive options for holiday catering and corporate catering. Check out our specialty candy and Sweet Shops for international chocolates, nostalgic candy, seasonal apple boxes for shipping and beautiful gift baskets for every occasion. You’ll love the homemade treats from our Bakery departments including pastries, cupcakes, specialty cakes, customizable sheet cakes for parties and a variety of seasonal pies such as apple pie, pumpkin pie and pecan pie. And be sure to stop by our Coffee Shops for a wide selection of coffee beans, fresh brewed coffees and specialty drinks. Adams Gift Shops carry a wide selection of clothing, jewelry, bath & body, toys, fall decor and more. You’re sure to find that special holiday gift for everyone on your list.
