Dan Farrand, longtime Morris County farmer nd active farm organization leader, died February 8 after a long illness. Dan was a stalwart farmer and champion of agriculture, taking over the family farm business in Long Valley from his father Harold that pre-dated the days of the American Revolution. Past member of the State Board of Agriculture and Farm Bureau director for many years, he was rock solid in speaking on behalf of fellow farmers throughout his adulthood. We mourn his passing and express deep condolences to his wife Janet and family.
