Joe Peck, with his son David, milks 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 years 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. He is the author of two books: A Cow in the Pool & Udder Humorous Farm Stories, and A Tractor in the House & Other Smashing Farm Tales.
