AUSTERLITZ, NY – The Doyle family has been farming in Columbia County since 1875, when Patrick Doyle first purchased 90 acres of Austerlitz farmland to raise sheep for meat and fleece. Four generations later, however, the family was facing a challenge common to our region: how to plan for the farm’s succession.
It’s time to get together to connect on the issues that matter. There’s an organized but fun way to meet up—share ideas—and move ahead.
Right now the dialog is happening in Poughkeepsie. Other communities will host conversations in the future.
The conversations are about how groups and individuals can partner better to make the most of life in our communities.
