Steve Stolzfus, Farm
Steve is our invaluable connection to the local community and probably the hardest working man on the farm. Steve grew up in the Honey Brook area and seems to be a distant relative of everyone in two counties. There is no way to explain how valuable his connections can be. Steve has a wealth of knowledge about cows from his past experience with his own dairy herd.
