Ben Peyton lives on Fuller Road in Adams. His home is surrounded on both sides by wide green corn fields. Those corn fields are owned by a dairy farmer, Mike Hill. He runs Hillcrest farms. Peyton points across the road from this driveway.
“The manure pit will be located just on the eastern side of that,” Peyton said.
Peyton and his neighbors want Hill to pick another site. The proposed pit will sit above the Tug Hill aquifer.
