2016 Landscape Preservation Award

We were totally surprised and delighted to receive a phone call in November of last year
that we were to be awarded the Landscape Preservation Award for 2016
given by the Landmark Society of Western New York.
We received the award at the Rochester City Hall on November 13th, 2016.

Even more wonderful than this unexpected honor were the reasons why we were selected.
When we queried, "Why us?" the answer given was, "You steward both the land and buildings respecting their historic origins.
In addition to preserving many individual structures you have maintained
original field size and saved many authentic heirloom plantings. The preservation of landscape
requires the most commitment of time and resources of any award we give."

This recognition validated our years of quiet devotion to the conservation and preservation of our farm.
The fact that those more knowledgeable than we saw our work and believed in what we are
trying to achieve is just fantastic! Though we may follow a path that veers from the norm for a modern fruit farm,
this recognition has given us renewed confidence to continue with our dedication to the preservation
of all aspects of our farm and farm life.
