Tom Williams of Durhamville – Thank A Farmer

Paige Williams

We’ve teamed up with Whites Farm Supply and James Wesley to ‘Thank a Farmer.’ One farmer will be Wesley’s special guest at our Wild West FrogFest and Rodeo June 14th at Herkimer County Fairgrounds.  Today we recognize Tom Williams nominated by his daughter Paige. Here’s his story:

Paige Williams

Tom Williams was born in 1958, the youngest of 7 siblings, and was raised on a farm in Durhamville, NY. He would have to get up before school and do chores. When he got home, he would have to do more. In 1976, his junior year of high school, his father passed away and he didn’t have a choice, he had to run the farm. Tom partnered with his brother Will and ran the farm. Somehow he still managed to graduate.

Tom met my mom Ann, got married, had a son and two daughters together and raised us on the same farm that he was raised on.

Tom taught himself how to fix ANYTHING that was broke, and said that stress gave him an adrenaline rush and made him work even harder.

In 2004 the milk house caught on fire and was destroyed. Tom and Will decided to get out of dairy but couldn’t completely let go of farming. He is now a crop farmer and running a trucking business with his brother that brings feed to farmers all over New York State.
