New farm in Hastings County

A huge, new, state of the art dairy farm north of urban Belleville was open to the public Saturday.

The proud owners of this beautiful new dairy operation are father and son, Peter and Gerry Tummon.

It’s a big, open air barn. It’s almost the length of a football field, and 135 feet wide. It’s not the biggest dairy barn in Hastings County, but it’s the only one with robots milking the cows.
