Sullivan family proud to preserve farm

Jan 22nd, 2012 | By | Category: Farm

Even though it is not the farm of his youth, George “Jake” Sullivan said he is pleased it is still fertile land, rather than pavement winding through a housing subdivision or apartment complex.

“When I look out and it’s not covered with houses, I’m happy as hell,” said Sullivan, the father of four adult children and nine grandchildren.

Once he became “too old” to keep up with the dairy farm, Sullivan said, he needed to figure out a way to afford retirement without allowing development.

He sold off the dairy cows when he was 65, and then cut and sold hay until he sold the property to the town.
