Mom & Pop Farms of Orleans County
Holly is working on her third local history book. Focusing on agriculture, this book is centered around the now long gone era of Mom and Pop farms. We do still have farm families, of course, but not the small, self-sustaining farms so many of us enjoyed. By the 1980s, the question was no long, “What crops are you growing this year?” but, “Who are you leasing your land to this year?”
If you wish to include your farming story or share a great farming photo, please e-mail Holly as soon as possible!
