Hard work creates high-quality raw milk at Brookby Farm

by Curtis Schmidt

(Continued from Home Page) It’s the satisfaction of “seeing families coming to visit the farm, watching the kids help with the milking and seeing everyone enjoy the food at a picnic right here on the farm,” said Steve’s wife, Jaime.

And it’s the satisfaction of “seeing the raw milk transformed into cheese products that are available in stores all over the Hudson Valley. That’s really cool,” said Steve.

The land of Brookby Farm, which has been preserved for farming via an agreement with the Dutchess Land Conservancy, has been in the Vincent family since the late 1700s. The original owner was Absolom Vincent.

Steve’s great-great grandfather, Charles Vincent, received 400 acres as a wedding present from his father in 1850. The farm, including the 1850 farm house, has been handed down through the generations.

Officials and the local firefighting community expressed sorrow and condolences on the death of Clinton Corners resident Tim McCormack, in a helicopter accident in Manhattan on June 10.

McCormack, 58, was a professional pilot who attempted an emergency landing when his helicopter crashed and caught fire.
A longtime volunteer firefighter, McCormack served as chief of the East Clinton Fire Department for 10 years; according to his obituary, he was the longest sitting chief in the district’s history. Previously, McCormack was a member of the LaGrange Fire Department.

The East Clinton Fire Department issued a statement via its website and on Facebook, noting McCormack “was a dedicated, highly professional and extremely well trained firefighter.”
