Casual eatery at Brookside Farm offers tasty organic food and great views

Driving south on Albany Post Road in Gardiner, with eyes on the road and preoccupied by thoughts of errands to run, there's a fleeting impression of picturesque farms and pastoral landscape passing by. Much of it goes by too quickly to appreciate. But look for the sandwich board on the side of the road approaching Brookside Farm, and pull into the parking lot there to find a restful, wide-open bucolic scene backed by the distant Shawangunks that makes you want to forget the rest of what you have to do that day.
