Quinney’s Donations to the Institute
July 14, 2016
Dr. Richard Quinney and his wife, Solveig, recently donated three framed photographs that were taken by Richard at his ancestral home, the Quinney Farm.
Michael Fields Agricultural Institute rented the Quinney farm for several years as part of the USDA funded WICTS Project. The photographs will serve to remind the staff, Board members and stakeholders the important role that collaboration plays in the work of the Institute.
Lois Quinney, wife of Ralph Quinney (Richard’s brother), has donated a 1946 Oliver Row Crop tractor to Michael Fields Agricultural Institute. The tractor was purchased new by the Quinney brothers and used to operate their farm just north of Delevan. Michael Fields will use the tractor during field days and special events at the Institute.
Thank you to Richard, Solveig and Lois Quinney for their generosity!
