New York Farm Bureau President Dean Norton traveled to the 62nd Senate District to personally welcome State Senator George Maziarz (R-C, Newfane) into the Farm Bureau’s “Circle of Friends.” The announcement came during a visit to Blackman Homestead Farm in the Town of Cambria in Niagara County.
Senator Maziarz attended the annual meeting of the Niagara County Farm Bureau, held at Niagara County Fairgrounds north of Lockport. Here he speaks with Jeremy Verratti, a fourth generation dairy farmer in Gasport, and Joe Ohol, a dairy farmer in Cambria.
Paul Bencal, a grape farmer from Niagara County and Chair of the New York Farm Bureau Foundation for Agricultural Education, today thanked the Verizon Wireless Foundation for a recent grant to help the Foundation teach elementary school students about technology in agriculture.
Senator George Maziarz recently toured Coulter Farms in Cambria with members of the Western New York Land Conservancy. The WNYLC is in the final stages of establishing a permanent conservation easement on this property so the land will be permanently protected.
