PINE PLAINS — In the wake of a devastating structure fire that destroyed two dairy barns and killed 46 cows at Ancramdale’s Millerhurst Farm in October, the Miller family was surrounded by love and support at a benefit held at The Stissing House on Sunday, Nov. 11.

Tickets were sold out. There was a silent auction, with many donations from area businesses, including a tour and tasting at Millbrook Winery, a two-night stay at The Inn at Pine Plains, two botanical watercolors by artist Mita Consini Bland, dinner for four at Mashomack Preserve and more.
