Established in 1986.
Starting as a small “Country Store” in 1986, The Country Goose attracted a devoted following among both locals and visitors to the Village of Cold Spring. In 1990 Highland Baskets was established as an offshoot to the retail store. The store is now one of the most successful businesses in the Hudson Valley.
