Welcome to IBFG Farms!

Just like the farm, this web site is under construction!  I Be Farming Grapes is a startup farm located in Watkins Glen NY.

More info will be coming soon.

Many thanks to everyone who is helping us build the farm from the ground up:

Ray our amazing sysadmin (thanks for getting WordPress up and running!)

Erin, our new VP of Marketing!

Chris, our hard working Termporary Relief Assistant Farming Operations Supervisor.

Amber for keeping us all going with her constant encouragement.

Our herd of 10,000 bee’s for pollinating everything,

and Schrödinger for thinking outside of the box!

Out with the old, and in with the new!

Out with the old, and in with the new!

After using GrandPa’s 65 year old tractor for the last couple of years, we felt it was time to upgrade to a slighty newer tractor.

It’s a 1949, Ford 8N tractor.  It’s had it’s share of problems, but it’s never let me down.  I’ve beat it as hard as I could and wasn’t able to break it too badly.


We picked up a 2005, John Deere 5205 Agriculture tractor for the local JD dealer.  All in all this is an incredible tractor, and very well suited to building out our farm.


The new tractor is a BEAST.  I haven’t been able to get it stuck (yet), but I wasn’t really trying too hard.



Just another WordPress site, built with Beer, sweat, hard work, chicken wings and did I mention Beer?
