I live on the east side of Cayuga
Lake in the beautiful Finger Lakes

the largest producer of corn in
New York and dairy and crop
farming are prominent here. We
farm IJOOO acres, growing corn,
soybeans, red kidney beans, hay,
oats, and wheat.
This year, we are growing 100
acres of sweet corn and SO acres of
peas for a cannery. Our oldest son
raises sweet corn, sunflowers,
squash, gourds, and Indian corn
for a roadside stand and pick
your-own pumpkins.
Another son raises beef cattle.
Our daughter is a pharmacist and
our youngest son is a critical care

My husband Leonard is retiring
from farming. Potatoes and grain
have been our main crops. Dairy
ing in the past and now feeding
beef are part of the operation. Two
of our seven sons are actively
farming and are taking over the
operation now. We also have four
daughters all married and
have 14 grandchildren. We enjoy
traveling (we never took enough
travel time while dairying so we're
doing so now while we have the
health to enjoy it.
Our family all enjoy Lancaster
Farming, especially one daughter
living in New York and working for
New York City. She like myself
tries many of the recipes. We
would like to see more recipes that
show us how to cook healthy but
also cut calories and cholesterol.
Another dairy idea: Buy Aunt
Wick’s Root Beer. It’s packaged
like Kool Aid and usually found
near it in supermarkets. Follow
directions on packages except sub
stitute milk for the water. A great
drink! Good for those who may not
tolerate chocolate.

My husband Bob and I enjoy
Lancaster Farming very much
(although different features draw
our attention). We have three
children, Bobby, 17; Jennifer, 16;
and Joey, 11. This is Joey's favo
rite snack.
We are born-again Christians
and attend New Covenant Church
of God. When I began taking this
cream cheese tuna spread to the
fellowships, it became such a favo
rite that now many of my friends
have their own unique additions.
