Wood Farms #2

When he was just a year old, Wesley Bourcy’s family moved to north central New York on Lake Ontario. “I’ve lived here all my life,” he says, then pauses and chuckles: “Well, I could say that, but I ain’t dead yet.” His earliest memories, Wesley recalls, are of being in the barn with his parents: his dad milking by hand on one side while his mom used a milking machine on the other. “It’s all I ever wanted to do,” he says, noting proudly that there’s still a photo of him at age 8 milking a cow by hand.
