Saving Spruce Acres

Building a Foundation for ALT's Future

Voices from the Land: George Thurston

Over the years we have heard many personal stories from local farmers – stories of early mornings and long days, perseverance in the face of change, and a deep-seated passion for working with the land. Now, through our new video series, we’re sharing those stories with you. We hope that you’ll enjoy them as much as we do, and that you’ll share them with your family and friends, as well.
