It’s Friday, March 11, 2022. To some it’s a normal day. To others, it’s a day like no other. A day where the entire farming community in the Hudson Valley pause to recognize the birth of two phenomenal individuals who have been instrumental in building the reputation of the Hudson Valley as a premier farming hub while perpetuating the family’s legacy of women-owned farming.
By now, some of you would know who I am talking about. In case you’re still on the fence, I am talking about Amy and Gail Hepworth! Twin sisters with different personalities but a singular vision who have impacted the lives of many. Hepworth Farms, an organic vegetable farm and Hepworth Ag, an organic Hemp/CBD farm are both under their tutelage. Their leadership is inspirational and their passion for people unmatched.
Today, we celebrate two of the most influential women alive. Strength personified, resilience embodied. Here’s to another year around the sun. We look forward to doing it all over again next year and beyond.
