George Family Farm

Interlaken, NY

John George and his son John III run the George Family Farms in Interlaken, New York. The farm sits on a hill overlooking Cayuga Lake in the Finger Lakes region of the state, and visitors often remark on the 'million dollar view' the farm enjoys. The George family has about 400 milkers and 380 young stock. They grow 380 acres of corn sileage and 380 of alfalfa, and they rotate the crops every few years to maintain the health of the soil. William George, John II's father, started the family farm in 1957 after finishing his service in the Marine Corps. This was a surprise choice since William had no prior experience as a dairy farmer. He did, however, have a big heart and a burning desire to work the land, and set off on a venture that would leave his son and grandson to follow in his footsteps. John II took over the farm in the 1980s, and he then formed a LLC in 2008 with John Jr. John II's wife Lucinda does much of the bookkeeping for the farm.
