Reed Tours Militello Farms In Forestville
Tom Reed got a first-hand look at grape farming and farm supply operations at Militello Farms. The Militello family business began in the 1970s and has expanded to include a farm supply store that offers grape pesticides, trellis material, fertilizers and other items.
Tom was able to tour the facilities, the store, walk through the vineyards and test the sugar levels of grape samples. Owner James Militello gave Tom a behind-the-scenes look into day-to-day farm operations.
“The hard work and dedication put into the Militello family farm and farm supply store is evident and I thoroughly enjoyed the visit,” said Tom. “Visiting local businesses and farms across the district is incredibly important, as these smaller operations build both our communities and our economy. Thanks to the Militello family for hosting us – we wish you continued success in the future.”
“I enjoyed that Tom personally took the time to come and learn about our business – I think that’s very important,” said James Militello. “We’re excited to continue the family tradition here at Militello Farms and we are looking forward to the harvest season."Militello Farms is located at 2929 Route 39 in Forestville, NY.
