Perfect place

Don and Sherry McNeil both grew up on local dairy farms in the rich farming community of Ellenburg Center, New York, just a few miles south of the Canadian border. In 1984, the couple started renting the property that would become Don-Sher Farm when they bought it two years later. Sherry’s mother had lived on the same farm, then known as Bilows Potato Farm, when she was a child. “The place was perfect for us,” Sherry says.

I love working with the animals. They need us, we need them. It's meaningful, this work we do.
