Taconic Farms

 

 

Taconic Farms is a large facility in Germantown Columbia County New York.  This is no ordinary farm, don't expect to find cows and rows of corns.  This is a place where serious research specimens are bred; yes rodents for research.  The facility is commonly referred to by the locals as the rat farm.

Anyway this is really serious business the research rodents are provided to to researchers all over the world and in one way are another has impacted our lives.

Recently it was announced that there would be a big expansion near Albany because of some colloboration with the University of Albany

The present operation in Germantown is very important to the community, I am positive it is the largest employer in town.  This was a farming community but many of the farms are no longer in operation so the Taconic Farms  contributed to the economy.

Germantown is one of the towns in my marketplace and its a popular destination for consumers coming from New York City seeking a second home.
