Family Farm Day

  • Saturday, August 25, 2018, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Saturday, August 25, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., provides a unique opportunity to discover so much of what our local agriculture has to offer. Fifty-five farms across Schoharie, Otsego, and Delaware 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, cider making, and much more. 

Our maps (pages 8, 16, and 24) will help plan your day and guide you to the farm locations. Each county is shown in its entirety with numbered farms clearly indicating their locations. Be sure to download while in regions with stronger signals. GPS coordinates are listed for participating farms; road signs will be posted to assist your tour.

For everyone’s safety, please adhere to Family Farm Day etiquette

  • Pets are not allowed on participating farms.
  • Remain in designated visitor areas while on farms.

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

Family Farm Day is a collaborative event produced by Cornell Cooperative Extension Schoharie and Otsego Counties, Cornell Cooperative Extension Delaware County, Schoharie County Chamber of Commerce, Otsego County Chamber of Commerce, Cooperstown Chamber of Commerce, Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, Schoharie County Tourism, Otsego County Tourism, Delaware County Tourism, Schoharie, Otsego, and Delaware County Farm Bureaus, and Schoharie, Otsego, and Delaware County farms.
