Peckhaven Farm

Saratoga Springs, NY

Peckhaven Farm in Saratoga Springs, New York has been in the Peck family nearly 200 years. They crop 250 acres of corn and alfalfa for their herd of 115 milkers and 80 young stock, all registered Holsteins. David Peck farms in partnership with his father, Joe Peck, who purchased the farm from his parents, Schuyler and Viola in 1960, and so on back to Amos Peck. Both Joe and David have worked on the farm all their lives except during the years they attended Cornell University. In fact, Joe was born in the house on the farm where he still lives. While David is now responsible for management of the spread, Joe still works eight to ten hours a day side-by-side with his son. "It takes long hours to succeed in dairy farming," says Joe.
