Protected Farms FY 2012-2013 Sunset Ridge Dairy enews sizeNew York’s Farmland Protection Program aided in permanently protecting 9 farms in State Fiscal Year 2012-2013, which closes March 31. The farms are located across the state from Long Island, to the Hudson Valley, the Finger Lakes Region and Western New York and represent a full range of agriculture including nursery, dairy, and crop farming. One farm, Sunset Ridge Dairy, located in Dutchess County, is operated by Kevin Smith. “We wanted to plan for our retirement and pass the farm on, as it is, to our daughters. Protecting our farm allows us to provide agricultural land for future generations.”
