Breezy Acres Bed & Breakfast

Bed & Breakfast on a former dairy farm in Hobart, NY

About

Until 1988, Breezy Acres was a working dairy farm, with 150 milking head and 150 replacement stock. We also made maple syrup (at one time the largest producer in Delaware County) and sold sweet corn at a small roadside stand.

After the cows were sold, we continued to grow hay and corn which we sold to other area farmers. In addition, Dave started a small excavating business, and began to grow and sell pumpkins. During that time, we purchased more land and made a subdivision, and sold building lots. Dave also built a log cabin and sold that, as well. Now, our land is leased to a local farm family, who continue to grow hay and corn for their own cows. This keeps the land in farming, something that is important to us.

In the past few years we have increased our pumpkin production, and gone into partnership with a family who have 3 young children. They have the same thoughts as us about keeping their children productively busy; learning about agriculture, and the many skills they will acquire.
