Past and present farming experience:

We are a family of 6: a young, 21 year old farmer; 2 parents; 2 teenage brothers; and gramma.
Our eldest son has wanted to farm since boyhood. He is level headed, hard-working and beloved by all the farmers around us. He is currently finishing a second year of internship at Hawthorne Valley Farm in Columbia County NY. This is an 800 acre organic/biodynamic dairy farm with 54 milking cows and a CSA with 300 members. The production garden of 15 acres feeds not only the CSA members but also 3 markets in New York City and a large retail store.
Our son also has experience raising broiler chickens; rotational grazing beef cattle, caring for hogs and maple sugaring. As parents we bring skills in vegetable gardening, backyard chickens, goats and sheep, maple sugaring and the care of fruit trees and berries. Our son is now starting to get "suggestions" from his mentors that he is ready to start out on his own. We, his family, would like to be part of that and support him as he gets started.
