It’s the end of August and as we head into September we’re reminded of the Fall harvest going on right now. YCN news stopped by Beaver Pond Farm in Newport to talk with Ben and Becky Nelson, who are seventh generation family-members running the farm hacked out of wilderness in 1780 by their ancestor, William Osgood. This local farm provides outstanding agricultural products to Sullivan County and they value tradition, history and excellence, all while staying current on agricultural practices, trends, and food safety.
By the way, sixth generation ancestor, Norma McDonough, who is semi-retired, is still working every day at Beaver Pond farm! And in case you’re getting hungry, their specialties are vegetables, apples, pumpkins, and pick-your-own raspberries, with tomatoes and sweet corn as their top sellers.
