Woody Hill Farms

Salem, NY

Mark Cary did not plan to be a farmer. He grew up on small dairy farm east of Saratoga Springs, one of seven children. “I knew I didn’t want to farm after long, hot days throwing hay bales while my buddies were off floating down the river,” he reflects. He and Jennifer Cary started dating in high school and both studied agriculture at Cornell. Jennifer also came from a dairy farming family; her grandparents Hap and Grace Sheldon moved their farm to Salem in 1942 and Jennifer’s father, Jim, and his brother, Dan, had taken over Woody Hill Farms.
