INTEGRITY, COMMITMENT & PASSION
For over 90 years the Muck land, four miles south of the village of Sodus has flourished under the supervision of a Datthyn. It started when Jake Datthyn came to the U.S. from Holland's province of Zeeland in 1921. Back then celery, onions, and potatoes were the primary crops.
In 1965 Ken Datthyn took over the muck and over time expanded the operation by acquiring 7 surrounding farms totaling over 500 acres. He grew celery, onions, potatoes and added in tart cherries and apple in 1972. Over time the onion operation became on of the most successful in NY and became the primary crop.
In 2013 the operation expanded again with a 100 acres expansion of the fruit operation.
