Farm Trail Weekend 2021 set in Schuyler County

Cornell Cooperative Extension
Harvest season is a great time to see all the activity on Farm Trail Weekend.

Have some family fun down on the farm during the 2nd Annual Schuyler County Farm Trail Weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 25 and 26. Ten of the finest farms in the Watkins Glen area and throughout Schuyler County are opening to the public, offering tours, tastings, hay-rides, demonstrations, apple picking, farm-market shopping and meet farm animals.

Farm Trail Weekend events include celebrating National Alpaca Farm Days at Four Seasons Alpacas in Dundee.

These farm experiences are authentic as well informative, entertaining family fun. The weekend event is organized by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schuyler County and Watkins Glen Area Chamber of Commerce. Guests are able to purchase produce and goodies from the farms, including hand-crafted cheeses, apples, veggies, jams, cider, donuts, pies, and alpaca products.

Visit the animals that provide the milk for a wide variety of dairy products.
At Russell’s Alpaca Acres in Burdett, you can take a tour, visit the newborn baby alpaca, and learn about raising alpacas, plus shop for alpaca products, yarn, and raw fleece.

To learn about other attractions in the area, as well as places to stay overnight, please visit WatkinsGlenChamber.com. Those looking to expand the experience are invited to check out the region’s celebrated wine trail at SenecaLakeWine.com
