The New York state government has fined Cynthia and Robert Gifford, the owners of Liberty Ridge Farm, $13,000 because they refused to hold a same-sex wedding ceremony on their property.

Two lesbians, Melisa Erwin and Jennifer McCarthy, filed a formal complaint with the state Division of Human Rights, prompting Judge Migdalia Pares to rule that the farm was a “public accommodation.’’ Pares ordered the Giffords to pay a $10,000 fine to the state and two payments of $1,500, one for Erwin and one for McCarthy.

The issue began when Erwin called Cynthia Gifford to ask about holding a wedding there. Gifford replied that the farm did not hold same-sex weddings, unaware that McCarthy was surreptitiously taping the conversation.

The Giffords’ farm is in upstate Schaghticoke, near Albany. They have resided there for 25 years, raising a son, now 21, and a daughter, 17. The Giffords opened their farm for events 15 years ago, allowing receptions of all kinds on their property, including same-sex receptions, just not same-sex weddings.

Cynthia Gifford told the New York Post, “We respect and care for everyone! We had an openly gay man working for us this past season. We’ve had a woman who’s transitioning to be a man. We don’t discriminate against anyone.’’

She added, “This is scary. Scary for all Americans.”
