Holland Farms serving up sweets since 1955


Since 1955 Holland Farms Bakery & Deli has been serving the Mohawk Valley with products made fresh every day in their store located at 50 Oriskany Blvd. in Yorkville. Holland Farms makes all their products by hand, featuring a full service bakery of donuts, pies, cakes, pastries and cookies. The deli salads are made from scratch daily in their kitchens, as well as green salads, lunches, sandwiches and complemented by their premium deli meats.

When you hear the name Holland Farms three things come to mind: Halfmoon cookies, Jelly Buns and their Deli. Here is a breakdown of all their yummy goodness.

IMG_2330Halfmoon cookies:

Holland Farms bakes some of the very best halfmoon cookies in central New York, fresh from scratch, every day. Halfmoon cookies are unique to the area – they originated right here in Utica in the early part of the 20th century. When people who have moved away from central New York come back to visit, they almost always tell us that of all the things they miss from here is the halfmoons most of all.

Holland Farms offers the traditional chocolate halfmoon cookie frosted with half chocolate and half vanilla icing. And yes, they make the same cookie in vanilla.

But we also know our customers have different tastes, and sometimes are looking for something a little bit out of the ordinary. That’s where the halfmoon madness comes in.

Would you like a chocolate halfmoon with all-chocolate icing? No problem. How about a vanilla cookie with all-vanilla icing? We make those! Maybe you’d like a jelly coconut moon… we do that, too. Or what about a chocolate moon with vanilla swirled frosting, or… a vanilla moon with chocolate swirled frosting? You guessed it – you can get one of those halfmoon cookie varieties at Holland Farms, too!

Additionally, we create special halfmoons for special occasions – you’ll find them dressed in red for Valentine’s Day, wearin’ the green for St. Patrick’s Day and frosted in pretty pastels for Easter. We can frost halfmoons to reflect your special occasion, too – just ask us!

In fact, they are so mad for halfmoons they declared March as Moon Madness Month.

Their Jelly Buns are a central New York favorite, and are made from scratch, fresh in their bakery, every day. In fact, every February is Jelly Bun Month – in the month of February alone, over 55,000 of these yummy treats are sold, including Heart Shaped Jelly Buns made for Valentine’s Day. Most of their customers love their Jelly Buns covered in sweet, snowy confectioner’s sugar, but you might also want to try their glazed or plain varieties as well. Not to mention, every single Jelly Bun is over-filled with amazingly delicious black raspberry jam, so be sure to grab a couple of napkins, too!


Holland Farms Bakery and Deli also offers some of Gram’s favorites: potato, macaroni and pasta salad, regular coleslaw or sweet and sour, and a large selection of other meal add-ons that will make your dinner into a gourmet feast.

Also, hot comfort food lunches are served daily, all made from scratch here in their kitchen. They offer homemade mashed potatoes and gravy served with meatloaf, fresh roasted turkey, or pot roast, each with a fresh vegetable side. Get a pre-made sandwich or let them build you one from scratch. And, make sure to try one of their specialty salads or homemade soups that are made fresh daily.
