Field Singing on Shelter Island

Some of the field singers from Sylvester Manor Farm.
I met some amazing people at the Long Island Small Farm Summit.  The event went off without a hitch and I'll be posting a great deal about it in the coming days.  But, I thought I would introduce you to some great folks who are involved with farming culture on Shelter Island, which is an island in the middle of the two forks of the east end of Long Island.

Their farm is called Sylvester Manor and as they say, they are putting the culture back in agriculture.  I think this video says it all.

They have been bringing back field singing in a big way and they performed at the summit prior to Will Allen's presentation.

As you know, I post quite a bit on sustainability and historic preservation, and I think these folks bring it all together quite well.
