Kerber’s Farm in Huntington has long sold jams, baked goods, egg sandwiches, pies, and more on Long Island, but it will now bring its country chic wares down to the city. In a vintage Land Rover, owner Nick Voulgaris will sell pies and jams in Manhattan starting in late October leading into the holiday season.
“I live in the West Village and there’s not a great place nearby to get pies. It seemed like a natural trajectory to have something close to home,” Voulgaris says. “Eventually I’d like to get a satellite both in Sag Harbor and NYC and the first step in that is going to be this vintage Land Rover.”
Voulgaris took over Kerber’s in 2013, saving the farm from being developed as condominiums. Since then, the goods have caught the attention of none other than Martha Stewart and Oprah, who the Post reports are major fans of the cookies and pies, respectively. Such attention has led to distribution deals with Saks, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman-Marcus, and William-Sonoma, in addition to the NYC expansion.
Dates and places aren’t set yet for the truck, but it will rove around the West Village, Chelsea, Tribeca, Upper West and East Sides come late October.
