Finger Lakes Farm Country gets an app
FINGER LAKES – Finger Lakes Farm Country, a five-county initiative intended to promote the abundance of agricultural resources in the region, is taking advantage of technology by creating a new Farm Country app as a way to connect locals and visitors with over 200 agricultural experiences and products.
From where to cuddle cows or do yoga with goats to where you can visit with alpacas, taste delicious duck-egg ice cream, do some u-pick fruit picking, find a nearby farm market, or even arrange for a farm stay, the new Finger Lakes Farm Country app puts the many agritourism businesses and experiences from Tioga, Chemung, Steuben, Schuyler and Yates counties right at your fingertips.
Want to do some horseback riding? No worries. There are nearly a dozen different equine experiences to be had in Farm Country from rodeo activities to boarding and riding.
Interested in supporting the locavore movement? Click the “Eat” button and discover sundry restaurants offering locally-sourced ingredients. The “Trails” section provides information about and links to local beverage trails, with other agricultural trails to be added later. Specially curated "Tours" (also known as itineraries) will also be added.
