They worked the land, selling fresh produce to area retailers. By 1933 they had four children—Diana, Dorothy, Ralph and Donald—and a successful farmstand. Adams Fairacre Farms was born.”
In recent years Adams Fairacre Farms has grown to four locations: Poughkeepsie, Kingston, Newburgh and Wappinger.
