Farmers for the Future network member James Militello -- a 5th generation farmer from western New York -- grows Concord grapes, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and other fruits on his farm. "I operate a 275 acre grape farm which is a medium to large farm for our area," he says. "I market most of my grapes through the National Grape Cooperative, which is the owner of Welch's." Here, Militello shows a grape vineyard.
