How farmers in FLX, CNY prepare and clean up after winter storm

People in Cortland County saw over a foot of snow, and farmers in the area have to prepare and clean up so their business isn’t impacted.

On the snowy hills of Cortland sits a fifth generation dairy farm.

Branden Brown runs Trinity Valley Dairy Farm with his family. They milk 100 cows and bottle their own milk.
