Our Story

We love local, and belive in supporting our local farmers and community.

What makes our store special?

It starts with our farm and apple orchard, just behind the store. We have over 200 apple trees and 30+ varieties of dessert, pie, and cider apples. We’ll post a list of varieties as we get closer to the apple picking season! In the Fall we’ll be selling apple cider fresh-pressed right here at the store. We also turn some of that delicious cider into our own sensationally smooth apple cider vinegar, available in 375 and 700 ML bottles. Our best-kept secret, garlic scape pesto, is also available to a lucky few in late July when we pick our scapes.

The Hungry Chicken Country Store Bacon, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich On A Kaiser Roll.

Freshly made breakfast sandwhiches.

Our breakfast sandwiches are freshly made to order, and customers say they’re awesome! We use the best ingredients: your choice of sausage, bacon and/or ham, real butter, 2 extra-large eggs, and American cheese on a fresh toasted kaiser roll. And don’t forget the sriracha, real maple syrup, or your favorite condiment. If you haven’t tried one yet, it’s time you do!

Satisfy your sweet tooth.

Looking to satisfy your sweet tooth? We make 7 kinds of fudge: maple, peanut butter, Mexican chocolate, chocolate/peanut, chocolate walnut and Bailey’s Irish cream. This season we invested in a soft-serve ice cream machine! We offer cones, cups and a home-made chocolate chip cookie ice cream sandwich that’s extra-large and out-of-this-world yummy.

The Hungry Chicken Country Store Local Arts and Crafts.

Awesome hand-made crafts.

If you’re looking for something unusual, come check out our hand-made crafts. Some we make ourselves – hand-painted hummingbird + bird feeders, jewelry, and candles – and others come from local artists. These are all one of a kind items that you won’t find at a big box store.

Low prices & high quality.

We try to keep our prices as low as possible without compromising quality. Some have told us that we don’t charge enough – but while we are here to be profitable and employ folks from the area, we also know that your dollars are hard-earned. We offer a military discount – 15% – for all active service members and veterans.

The Hungry Chicken Country Store Is Pet Friendly.

We're pet friendly.

Well-behaved dogs (and cyclists ) are welcome in our store, and we stock high-quality dog (and cyclist) treats. As dog (and cat and sheep) owners ourselves, we adore animals (and cyclists) and know how much they mean to their human owners.

Onward & upward.

This is our 3rd year on this retail adventure. While it’s been a lot of early mornings and hard (seemingly never-ending at times!) work, we are up for the challenge. We are blessed to have wonderful people who work for us and help us. We hope to be here for as long as you – our friends and customers – will have us. We consider you family and appreciate every day the support from our community.

We are located at 661 River Rd; Rotterdam, NY – on Rt 5S across from the Rotterdam Kiwanis boat launch. It’s at exit 1A off of 890 and just off Thruway exit 26.
