With the official start of autumn around the corner, it's just about that time to visit the many orchards in our area for the season’s best activity: apple picking. Family and friends from all over converge in the many apple orchards to take part in this fall tradition. It is truly a wonderful time of the year to be in upstate New York!  And I think we can agree that getting those crisp apples back to the kitchen for cooking and baking is when the magic beg...

On Saturday evenings you will always hear music playing at Stella. We feature extremely talented local musicians playing acoustic music in our fireplace room. We have decided to add a monthly afternoon music series and we couldn't be more excited!

Our kickoff event is with the extraordinarily talented Sean Rowe on Sunday, August 27th at 3:00 PM.

You have most likely heard the terms “eat local,” “farm to table” or “sourced responsibly.” When we opened Stella, we truly felt we wanted to use the freshest ingredients and buy as local as possible. This includes our produce, cheese, meat, seafood and even beer.

Every time Anne Hogue walks into Fo’Castle Farms in Burnt Hills, it’s sort of like stepping into a time machine.


“We have people who are bringing their grandchildren, and they’re telling us how when they were young they remember coming here with their grandparents,” said Anne, who, along with Glenn Hogue, owns and operates Fo’Castle Farms Country Store at 166 Kingsley Road in Burnt Hil...

I am so passionate about Italian cooking! It's what I grew up with. And, it reminds me of cooking with my mother and then sitting with my family at the end of a long day. Although Italian food is popular in almost every city and state in America, it's very easy to get it wrong. People tend to get too far from what makes it so special.


When I first got into the kitchen with John as a consultant for Stella, I was expecting a long night and a lot of work ahead...

Stella Bread is officially open! Our bakery is open Thursday through Sunday 8:00 AM until 

5:00 PM. When you walk into Fo'Castle Farm Country Store while Bill is baking, the aroma of bread just may have your mouth watering. For us, this aroma is nostalgic – a reminder of the entire family visiting the neighborhood bakery on a Sunday morning. A reminder of a simple pleasure; a family tradition. Bill's baking enables us to relive that experience dai...
