Dellavale Farm

Pattersonville, NY
46 cows

City kids, country kids

After her family and animals, fourth-generation farmer Terri Phillips loves nothing more than mentoring young farmers. She and her husband, Tom Nelson, have been involved with the agricultural program at John Bowne High School in New York City for close to a decade. The partnership involves hosting teenagers for a summer on the farm and introducing them to work with the animals. Many have never been on a working dairy farm or even close to a real cow, but some do fall in love with the life and purse college studies in agriculture.

Terri is the fourth generation of her family to farm.
"I've been volunteering with 4-H all of my life. It's what keeps farming in the here and now, and the future."
- Terri Phillips
