Douglas Farm

Ilion, NY

Jack and Tina Douglas run the Douglas Farm in Ilion, New York, and they have a lot of help. Their oldest son Bobby, who studied agriculture and mechanics, helps in every phase of the farm, but his preference is to work with the crops. Their next child Hannah, does most of the milking during the summers and helps with milking and other chores throughout the school year. Joshua, the youngest, helps feed the heifers, clean the barn, and most importantly, he takes full responsibility for the goats. Tina works full-time for a law firm in Cooperstown, NY, home of the Baseball Hall of Fame, and she also milks the cows and pitches in whenever needed. For the Douglases, dairy farming is a family affair and a matter of tradition.
