Schoharie County Family Farm Day

Looking to take a fabulous day-trip to learn where your food comes from?  Even take some home?  Welcome to the 3rd Annual Schoharie County Family Farm Day (FFD) which will be held on Saturday August 15, 2015. Catch the buzz about local food – and spirits – with real farm experiences.  Visit for free as many participating farms amidst our scenic landscapes as your schedule permits between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. – rain or shine!

If you are interested in participating in the event this year as a sponsor or farm for more information please contact David Cox at (518) 234-4303 or 296-8310 or e-mail schoharie@cornell.edu.   

Local farm families look forward to welcoming you to their farms for hands-on awareness and education about agriculture.  Sample bountiful farm-fresh products.  Enjoy farm demonstrations, activities, tours, and more.  Bring a cooler or insulated grocery bag to preserve your farm-fresh products purchased during the day.  A limited supply of Family Farm Day insulated bags will be on hand.

Here is last year's Schoharie County Family Farm Day Guide 2014.  Printed guides for 2015 will be available at participating farms and farmers’ markets, and at select locations in Schoharie County, the Capital District, Greene, and Otsego Counties in a few months.  

Family Farm Day is an agri-tourism initiative of Cornell Cooperative Extension Schoharie and Otsego Counties (CCE) and the Schoharie County Chamber of Commerce.  By all accounts from our inaugural event in 2013, Family Farm Day has become our signature event during the peak of the growing season.

The greater Schoharie Valley, much of which became designated as Schoharie County in 1795, is known as “the breadbasket of the American Revolution.  ”With rich farmland suitable for wheat crops, corn, vegetables, and apples, the region became an essential source of food for Revolutionary War troops.  Today, Schoharie County provides as rich and diverse an agricultural experience as you’ll find anywhere.
