See that paper bag in the Woodstock ‘69 image above? It came from Wrights’ Farm and was full of produce for the Hog Farm commune. The produce was picked up in a helicopter because the roads were so jammed with folks flocking to Yasgur’s Farm. Ted Wright, the 2nd generation of the farm, flew his plane over the festival to give his son, also Ted Wright, directions to the back roads that weren’t shut down. Ted was able to park his car right behind the stage! Ted Jr. is still groovin’ on the farm today, though operations have mostly passed to the fifth and sixth generation farmers — his daughter Tami and granddaughter Sam. But their phone number is still the same as the one stamped on that bag from 50 years ago! Wrights is a stalwart in our region, a bright spot in the rapidly diminishing landscape of family farms. We’re proud that out Market is one of the outlets the farm has to continue its success for future generations of farmers and eaters alike! Stop by their Market tent to learn more about the farm, their fall pick-your-own apples events, and to grab their summer melons!
