Farm and Country, with Rosie Starr, at 11:00 a.m.
Rural life in the Catskills and the Delaware River Valley. Here’s what’s featured on this edition of Farm and Country; Saturday, July 24, 2021, @ 11 am after NPR headlines.
Producer Rosie Starr shares her visit to The Diamond C Horse Farm in Damascus Pennsylvania; home to Jennifer and Le Roy Canfield. On a warm dry day in late June, Le Roy and Jennifer granted me a visit to experience “making hay while the sun shines”.
Yes, it includes hopping onto a Massey Ferguson tractor. That, and the smell of fresh mown hay, feels like Farm and Country heaven. Please note: This special broadcast was produced in advance of the recent heavy rains.
“Farm and Country” producer Rosie Starr is aware of the impact of this summer’s weather on local hay crops.
