Daryl Minton moved upstate to help manage the farm last summer. He lived on a farm for part of his childhood and studied permaculture after retiring from the military.

Daryl Minton at the Triple J Farm in Windsor, N.Y., Saturday, August 8, 2020. Minton lives and works on the farm. Minton’s grandfather, James Minton, Sr., bought the 20-acre parcel that became Triple J Farm a decade ago because he said he wanted a place his family could find refuge, whenever they might need. “This will be here for ages,” Minton said. “As long as there’s a descendant from the Minton family, this place will be here for them.”
