Brookview Station is located at Goold Orchards in Castleton, NY. Goold Orchards began in the spring of 1910 when James and Bertha Goold arrived by rail at Castleton’s town hub, a small whistle stop called the Brookview Station and walked to the farm they had recently purchased. Bertha, schooled at Emma Willard in Troy, and husband James, a recent graduate from Cornell were eager to apply the latest in agricultural technologies on their new fruit farm. Widowed in 1933, Bertha and her teenage son Robert continued to operate and grow the family farm. In 1941 Bob and his wife Marcia Grainer settled into the family farm and began raising a family. They continued to work and grow the family fruit farm into what is now Goold Orchards. Bob and Marcia eventually passed the day-today running of the farm to their children Peter, John and Sue, each of whom contributed to growing and running the family farm. Today, Sue Goold and husband Ed Miller own and operate the Goold family farm and the awardwinning Brookview Station Winery at Goold Orchards.
The winery was started in 2005, and has continued to garner awards ever since.
Congrats to Sue and Ed....and Karen and the gang! Well deserved!
