North Country Farming
I was asked to right a blog about farming in the North Country and I didn’t know where to begin.
I typed farming in the North Country into my search box and boy was I surprised!
Do you know how many different kinds of farming we have in the North Country? I didn’t! I thought the North Country was made up of cows with milk/cheese products. You hear a lot about the maple syrup industry too. What you don’t hear a lot about are the organics or the grape farms for wine. That’s only the beginning, as there is a small pig farm right down the road. How about fruits and vegetables? Most people have their own little gardens in their yards but there are larger farms that produce for the markets. Soy beans have become a good sized industry here. Then there are apples, strawberries, blueberries, sheep, corn, hay, herbs, garlic, greens, honey, turkeys, chickens, eggs, cattle for beef, bison, oats, horses and so much more. They even have fish hatcheries also considered to be farming. How about that! I can almost bet you never thought about it….I never did.
