As a young boy in Brooklyn in the 1930’s, Sam Rubin already knew that he was a farmer at heart. But all around him was concrete, and the post-Depression years swallowed dreams and what seemed like childish thoughts.
After WWII, Sam, an army veteran, soon met and wed Rhoda. Together they set about raising a family. After many hard years working as a driver for the New York City newspapers, he finally followed his dream and purchased his first farm in Cochecton, New York.
