Farming roots

Farmers often juggle lots of different kinds of work, but George Woodard is the only Cabot farmer who is also an award-winning movie director/writer/actor listed on the internet movie database IMDB. Before all that, George and his three siblings grew up on the farm that their grandfather bought in 1912, although his dad later sold the cows. School was not so much his thing, George admits, and his mother suggested he think about getting the dairy running again.

“That’s important to me, to keep it going. Everything else is a hobby; farming is my life and love.”
