WEST BLOOMFIELD HISTORICAL SOCIETY
8966 NY 5&20
The community currently has more than 20 active farms and at least that many retired farmers. The Historical Society, at 8966 Rt. 5 and 20, will hold a public open house in honor of local farmers on Tuesday, April 18, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The entire community is invited to celebrate the town’s agricultural heritage, with a special invitation to farmers, past and present, as well as their families and workers. The Society also aims to bring together area residents who began their work life as teens on West Bloomfield farms. The evening will include refreshments and a one-night special exhibit. Guests are encouraged to bring their farm memorabilia and photos, current farm business cards, and literature for display.
The focus on farming will continue with a public program at the Society on Tuesday, May 2, at 7 p.m. Attendees will learn how dairy farming has evolved over the generations to the state of the art operations seen in West Bloomfield today. John Mueller and Walt Huff, both operators of multi-generation dairy farms, will lead the program.
