Small Farm Diversification

  • Laughing Earth Farm 3842 New York 2 Cropseyville, NY, 12052 United States (map)

Your visit to Laughing Earth will include a tour and history of the historical house and barns. This farm is not a picture-perfect farm with the most beautiful of river bottom soils.  Instead, you can expect to see how we have made the most of our rolling hills, rocky soil, and two generations of farmers working together.

We will discuss a comparison of marketing venues, and the importance of integrating animals and poultry into vegetable production. Livestock production includes pasture raised chickens, turkeys, and pigs and helps to support our CSA and cut-flower businesses.   We will also tour our poultry processing area and equipment, and discuss our assembly line processing style and packaging.
