The above property yields, during an average year, 1,200 bushels grain, 80 tons hay, 6 acres corn, 2 acres potatoes and vegetables for own use. There is also a sugar-bush of about 1,200 trees located on property.
       Mr. Lafave's cattle are a fine herd of graded Holsteins, from which he sends daily 500 pounds of milk to the King's Road Cheese and Butter Factory. He has had a life's experience of farming, and has been a patron of the Cheese Board since its organization, twenty-one years ago.
