Hope Springs

Ana grew up in a small rural town in Rockland County NY, on a homestead surrounded by forest. As time went by it seemed that the only things growing on surrounding fields were cookie cutter houses on too small lots. That and malls. By the time Ana left the remaining dairy farm was losing ground to those folks who moved to “the country” and then found they didn’t like it.

Ana just came across this website for The Rockland Farm Alliance. “The mission of the RFA is to facilitate local sustainable agriculture in Rockland County.”

Maybe Ana could still fulfill her dream of winning a lottery, moving back home, buying out that development by her home, bulldozing it, and putting a farm back in. Or maybe not.

It’s nice to see that Conklin’s, Dr. Davies‘ and VanHouten’s are still there.
