Greece Historical Society presents…

Mom & Pop Farming in Orleans County, NY

A Presentation by Holly Ricci-Canham

Tuesday, May 9, 2017 • 7:00 pm •  Greece Public Library

Holly Ricci-Canham will talk about her book on local farmers, a two-year effort that culminated in a 300-page book; it includes about 400 photographs and reminisces about simple days filled with lots of hard work.

The farms featured in her book were part of a close-knit community with neighborhood schools and churches. Not unlike our own town of Greece of a generation ago.

Ricci-Canham grew up on a “mom and pop” farm run by her parents in Kenyonville. The book covers farm operations throughout the county with sections about muck farms, dairies, fruit and vegetable farms, canning companies, migrant labor camps, “ladies accounts, “and technology changes as well as country schools, “kids play,” and fairs and celebrations.

Autographed copies of her book will be for sale for $25.00.

Reservations are NOT required.
