Sarah was thrilled to marry her dairy farming husband, the son of Organic Valley farmers David and Susan Hardy. The Hardy’s have been certified organic since 1999 and now milk 90 cows. The Hardy Family Farm is in Mohawk, New York right in the Mohawk Valley. Sarah is a full-time teacher’s aide at a local school and she works part-time on the farm during the school year and full-time during the summer. Sarah went to school for Agriculture and received her Associates from Morrisville State College and her Bachelors of Science from Cornell University. She also enjoys spending time with her horse and showing livestock.
Sarah says, “I love to teach and talk about farming with people that have very little or no experience or understanding of it. So, I am excited to have the chance to do exactly that during the Gen-O Teach-In!
