Meredith Chilson and Kimberly Marie Conroy, local members of the National Society Descendants of American Farmers (1776-1914) presented a Farm Recognition Certificate to Trippacres in Little Genesee, NY on October 1. Second generation farmer Mary Tripp raises friendly cows, beef cattle, chickens and a pig on her 45+ Acres in Allegany County.
She talks of helping her dad with his cattle, working with 4-H, and dreaming of adding a new chicken area, a greenhouse, and an orchard. She’d like to be able to help provide beef, pork and chicken to her local community, believing it’s good to know where food comes from.
The mission of National Society Descendants of American Farmers (1776-1914):
To identify and honor the memory of our ancestors, who were farmers living within the present boundaries of the forty-eight contiguous continental states, between July 4, 1776 and July 4, 1914. The objectives of the Society are to honor past, present, and future American Farmers; to award agricultural scholarships to college students; and, to promote membership by engaging in activities that commemorate American Farmer ancestors.
