TRENTON, N.Y. -- The Trenton dairy farm that lost 200 cows in a barn fire is getting more than $1.7 million from the state to transition to a more diversified farm operation, not just dairy.
Jones Dairy Farm will be able to protect 740-acres of land as a result.
An electrical malfunction, in a barn one month ago is to blame for the fire that broke out.
The second generation farm has been on Whittaker Road for more than 50 years.
This grant is the first-ever "farmland protection award" made to an Oneida County farm.
