Announcement from CCE-Tompkins:

Open Farm Days

Saturday & Sunday, August 12 & 13, 12:00-4:00pm each day
@ Farm locations across Tompkins County, NY

2017 Open Farm Days is a FREE 2-day annual event that allows visitors to experience local agriculture up-close. Farms across Tompkins County will open their gates to the public for farm tours, demonstrations, food tastings, and animal interaction for an afternoon of family-friendly farm fun! Bring a cooler — many farms will have products to sell, and there are additional farm markets along the way!

This year’s tour features 17 farms including: several dairy farms (including two with cheese-making operations); organic and non-organic fruit and vegetable farms; farms that raise bison, llamas, horses, heritage pigs, flowers, and organic grains; a maple sugar bush; an apiary; an equestrian facility; and a non-profit “incubator” farm that trains new farmers.

Farms on the east side of Cayuga Lake are open on Saturday, August 12th from 12-4pm, while farms on the west side of the lake are open on Sunday, August 13th from 12-4pm.
