Mr. Young, my brother and I are visiting some folks in Coudersport on 20 and 21 Oct and were wondering if we could buy you a cup of coffee or some lunch? We are Beckmans (from Francis and John Beckman of Coudersport) and have taken over the estate's OGM affairs.

But beyond that, this site is made up of individuals who have worked hard for that little yard we call home. Or, that farm on which blood, sweat and tears have fallen.[ Read More ]
