The Life of a Family Dairy Farm

Photographs and interviews by George Bellerose.

Forty-Six Years of Pretty Straight Going: The Life of a Family Dairy Farm follows Weybridge farmers, Larry and Grayson Wyman, over the course of two years and provides the reader with a detailed visual and first-person narrative of a working farm. The documentary combines 165 contemporary and historical photographs, the author’s background introductions, historical accounts of farming dating to the first settlers, and narratives by the Wyman family.

“My interest has always been the farmer’s world as seen from the tractor seat and milking stool, not from the more distant vantage point of the agricultural economist, historian, legislator, task force member or policymaker,” Bellerose, a neighbor of the Wymans, commented. “The Wymans’ story illustrates the difficult choices—economic, social, and environmental—that family farmers everywhere face.”
