Family in farming
Lisa was also raised on a New York dairy farm and the couple met in college in farm finance class. “He was very smart so I decided I should sit next to him,” she recalls. The two became friends but not an item until after they graduated from school and Lisa’s work brought her near Porterdale Farms. The Porters raised three kids on the farm; their youngest, a daughter, is studying agriculture and might come home to farm. The couple also feels lucky to own and operate the farm with Greg’s younger cousin, Stephen Porter and his wife, Angela.
