Dairy farmers Sarah and Chris Ficken own and operate New Moon Farms in Munnsville, New York.
“I think for us, when we sat down before we had cows, before we had the farm, we decided what sustainability meant to us. And it really meant building a world where the where the future is better than what it is right now,” said Sarah Ficken.
Shortly before their wedding, Chris and Sarah stumbled on what would become their dairy farm. “We weren’t intending to find this farm,” said Sarah. “It was less than a week before our wedding. Instead of getting worried about things like, who was going to sit next to whom, we spent the week before our wedding looking at the farm, making sure it was right.” Chris jokes that instead of going on a honeymoon, the couple went right to New Moon.
