1st Generation Family-Owned Business

Cold Spring Farm is owned and operated by the Prezorski Family. Lenny and Lauren Prezorski are first generation farmers that share a passion for agriculture and the environment.

Lenny began growing vegetables in 1985, selling corn from a wagon in the front yard. Eventually, the business grew and so did the farm; adding new vegetables each year. Lenny and Lauren met in 2005 through work, both having careers in agricultural conservation, and a love for farming.

In 2012, Lenny retired from a 33-year career as a conservation planner for the US Department of Agriculture. At this point, he had the time to pursue Lauren’s love of flowers and Cold Spring Farm put up the first of their two greenhouses.

Today, Cold Spring Farm has grown to 28 acres of vegetables and 80 acres of field crops.

Lenny and Lauren Prezorski


Having careers in agricultural conservation, Lenny and Lauren care deeply about sustaining the natural resources on the farm. We use strip cropping and conservation cover crops to prevent soil erosion.


Crop rotations, including resting periods and the use of deep-rooted legumes, integrated pest management and pheromone traps are used to minimize our need to apply pesticides.


Lenny is a Certified Crop Advisor and a Certified Nutrient Management Planner. Cold Spring Farm uses these practices because they are the best for the environment and the health and safety of our produce.

The infamous "Cold Spring" at Cold Spring Farm


Cold Spring Farm was named after the year-round spring that once supplied water to the houses in Lawyersville. The spring has been recently renovated and is now used to supply irrigation water to our greenhouses and fields.


In the late 1700s, Captain John Reddington settled in the hamlet of Lawyersville after serving in the Revolutionary War under George Washington and surviving as a prisoner of war.


In 1811, the homestead of Cold Spring Farm was built for Capt. Reddington who went on to serve in the New York Legislature and to help establish the Lawyersville Reformed Church. The property was then established as a dairy farm In the late 1800s, Cold Spring Farm was owned by William Wallace, a superintendent for the New York Museum of Natural History.


Wallace invested heavily in Cold Spring Farm and during his summer stays, generated much controversy in Lawyersville. Of greatest significance was his adoption of Minik, an Inuit eskimo boy brought back from Greenland by the arctic explorer Robert Peary.


Minik spent summers on Cold Spring Farm with the Wallace family. Our farm has been included in the book “Give Me My Father’s Body” by Kenn Harper, as well as a European documentary film on Minik.
