Thank you so much to NYS Agricultural Society for honoring our very own Shannon Mason with the Next Generation Farmer Award.

The Next Generation Farmer Award recognizes both a long-standing operation that is excelling under new leadership and owner/operators who are brand new to agriculture and food production.

Shannon Mason, the sixth generation at Cowbella Creamery at Danforth Jersey Farm in Jefferson, was honored. The farm dates to 1817. Mason now operates the farm with her family and in 2010 created Cowbella, a farmstead creamery producing butter, yogurt and bottled milk.
