“County Executive Marc Molinaro is pleased that the farms will be protected and said, ‘Agriculture is a vital, diverse and growing economic engine in Dutchess County, and our Partnership for Manageable Growth Program allows us to strategically preserve farming as an industry. Farming plays a vital role in Dutchess County’s future, just as in our past, and we will do all we can to promote it. Our support will position these farms well for the future of the industry while allowing each to continue a centuries-old tradition in Dutchess County.’

Brookby Farm is a 49- acre property that is home to a 200-year-old, seventh-generation dairy farm. This family-owned and run farm produced and sold over 800 gallons of raw milk in the first two months of receiving its raw-milk license. There is a farm store on site, where eggs, chicken, beef and pork raised on the farm are sold, as well as products from other area farms including honey, maple syrup and locally roasted coffee.”
