The New York Farm girls consist of three sisters working on their family farm in the Finger Lakes Region of New York.
While they grow several crops, they are primarily a dairy operation.
The Lebuner family also has a 70-acre pumpkin patch that they’ve turned into an agri-tourism hot spot. Here they have a brewery, bakery, different mazes, and of course pumpkins.
“Farming is such a satisfying job. You plant things in the spring and then harvest in the fall to make a living. I think having your whole life in Mother Nature’s hands and having to trust in that is something that is really unique,” Claudia Lebuner said.
With over 145,000 followers on Instagram, the girls are working to educate and advocate for farming on social media. For them, connecting with others in the industry is incredibly worthwhile.
“It is so cool to be in a community where everyone is so alike, but also so different. You’re able to talk about farming without people getting bored. You also feel a lot less alone when you’re getting to know others in the agriculture community online,” Lebuner added.
During the month of August the family is working on harvesting wheat and hay. They’ll combine all of the wheat and then bale it. In terms of hay, the farm is working to get four to five cuttings.
“We all have radios in our tractors and trucks. We’re able to have way better communication. It really went from 0 to 100. They’ve been life changers," Claudia said.
