Joe Peck, with his son David, milk 100
registered Holsteins at Peckhaven Farm, a Dairy of Distinction,
near Saratoga Springs, New York. Joe wrote a humorous column "Peck's
Peckings" for eight year in the American Agriculturalist magazine.
Joe has been recognized by Cornell University as an outstanding
alumni, recognized by the governor of New York for the contributions
of his family to agriculture and the community, and recognized by
his banker as someone to keep an eye on.
Thankfully, Joe is supported by his patient wife, Pat, a retired
nutrition educator and his two daughters (one is normal and the
other is teaching.)
A member of the National Speakers Association and Toastmasters,
Joe feels that his greatest accomplishment is convincing his wife
that he doesn't have time to mow the lawn, but always has time to
go to an auction.
Joe has been entertaining audiences for years with a combination
of enlightened inspiration, homespun yarns and stand-up comedy,
drawn from a lifetime of farm experience.
"From the sound of laughter around the room and the numerous
comments I received afterwards from my JB customers, I can testify
that a good time was had by all."

"Your presentation at our General Motors Powertrain
Staff function exceeded our expectations. Our people thought it
was a work of genius to weave our manufacturing acronyms into
your world of dairy farming. To say the least, we've enjoyed a
host of wonderful comments about the whole evening."

laughter. Mr. Peck put on an outstanding performance."

"...Farmers love their families but measure time in relationship
to events on the farm. If you ask a farm wife "When did you
build the barn?", she will say "Let me think a minute.
It was the year our son was born and he was seven in August".
Ask a farmer the same question and he is likely to say it was
the year we bought the big tractor, and its just seven years old
"... I need two incomes, one for the principal and one for
"... Living within my income is out of the question, it's
all I can do to live within my credit."
"... A real farm wife must be able to pull her jeans on over
her nightgown, slip into her boots and be out the door in less
than 30 seconds when awakened in the middle of the night by the
dreaded cry The cows are out!"
