Museums, Farms, Images, and Experiences: Rural NY in the 21st Century
In a world of constant technological advancements, how do we best trace the history of agriculture, change over time within an industry and within farm families in New York State. This session will examine the working farmstead at Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village in Amherst, New York as it connects the town’s rural past with current interest. Session attendees will also see the connections made by The Farmer’s Museum’s photography collection, Plowline: Images of Rural New York as they actively collect original photography that documents changes in agricultural practice, rural life and farming family in New York State.
