Eric ’01 and Alana Goldstein ’00

“Eric and I met at DelVal when we both were RAs. Honestly, we knew of each other prior because it’s just that kind of place :)

“Eric was a business major and I was an English major, but we both had a background in and passion for agriculture.

“While at DelVal we worked together as RAs and also co-chaired the A-Day Food Committee. We should have realized then that someday we would work together.

“The environment at DelVal perfectly suited our interests and passions while simultaneously providing a unique education given that our majors were pretty general. Where else can you learn about modern British literature and also take a class on livestock husbandry? Or, in Eric’s case, study economics and also take a class in field crops. I believe DelVal creates a very well-rounded individual because of the wide variety of courses and majors offered. I also believe the hands-on experience, opportunities for leadership, and working together led us to where we are today.

“Today we own G5 Agency in Narrowsburg, New York, offering insurance of all types, but specializing in farms, ag businesses and food processing. We also have a very small herd of Jersey cows that we milk with our three daughters.”
