History of Farming

Perotti at Sunday Series Sunday, Sept. 21, 2014 at the Kent Town Hall, we hosted John Perotti of Lone Pine Farm in Millerton, NY. He spoke about the progression of farming in the area as well as his own family farm, which is now being operated by the fourth generation in the family.

In a wide-ranging talk, he discussed his own experiences with livestock and various crops — this man really loves cows! He also had some interesting things to say about genetically modified organisms, whole milk, and organic farming.  With candor and a great sense of humor, he described the challenges farmers face today.

The audience had several Kent farmers, including Megan Haney, Bill Case and Barry Labendz, who added their perspective to a lively discussion.
