Download the 2017 Family Farm Day Guide here

Saturday, August 12, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., provides a unique opportunity to discover so much of what our local agriculture has to offer. Thirty-five farms across two counties invite you to discover their brand of farming. 

The Farm Guide is your resource to the participating farms. Feel free to visit as many as your schedule permits. Explore fish farming, beekeeping, maple syrup making, cheese making, milk bottling, sheep’s wool processing, cashmere goats, orchards, or cider making, maybe even a “Tiny House.” 

The maps (pages 8,9 and 18,19) will help guide you to the farm locations and to plan your day. Each county is shown in its entirety with numbered farms clearly indicating their locations. For access online, visit www.familyfarmday.org, and be sure to download while in regions with stronger signals. Road signs will be posted to assist your tour. 

The Key to Symbols indicates which farms have which features, so you may enjoy the tours, rides, activities, free samples, and the opportunity to be close to farm animals where possible. Most importantly, take the time to get acquainted with some of our talented and resourceful producers. 

Family Farm Day Etiquette: 

• Pets are not allowed on Family Farm Day farms. 

• Please do not stray on farms; remain in designated visitor areas.

 . . . And be sure to bring a cooler or insulated bag to take home delicious, local, farm-fresh products purchased throughout the day.

Win an insulated tote bag!  Present your Stamp Card(page3) while visiting farms and receive one sticker per farm. Collect three or more stickers and turn in a completed Visitor Survey (page5) to win your Family Farm Day bag - one bag per family, please.

Family Farm Days brought to you by Cornell Cooperative Extension Schoharie and Otsego Counties, its participating farms and sponsors, all of whom wish you a fabulous adventure!
