COVID-19 has impacted us all in some way. Few have been harder hit than CNY farmers, who still wake every morning and put in a hard days work few of us can imagine. And it's why we're saluting those families, like the Vickerson Farm in Richfield Springs.

James Vickerson has been farming for nearly thirty years, and for twenty one of those he and his wife, Shannon have been operating an organic dairy farm on Highway 20 in Richfield Springs. They milk fifty-three head of cows and farm about one-hundred fifty acres of hay and another twenty-five of oats. And like most farmers, always helping neighbors, James artificially inseminates cows for others.

James and Shannon, thanks for all you do keeping Central New York families fed. We appreciate you getting up every day, no matter the weather, no matter the economic impacts, and no matter how you feel and taking care of us and the animals.
