M.G. Hurd and Sons is a 6th generation family farm. “Apples have been a part of my family history for a long time. It's hard for me to imagine that this family farm started out with a few acres of land and a sawmill. The Hudson River’s temperate climate, rich soils and the surrounding hills created the perfect setting for the valley that became famous for its apples,” shares Phil. They use IPM practices to grow the fruit on their 120 acre farm in Modena, NY.
