Farm Registration Open for Family Farm Day 2019

Once again farmers in Schoharie, Otsego, and Delaware Counties may welcome visitors to their farms during the 7th Annual Family Farm Day (FFD), Saturday, August 24, 2019. FFD is a signature agritourism event that engages farms, restaurants, local ag businesses, tourists, and visitors throughout the tri-county region. Farms eligible to participate have an opportunity to showcase their farm while introducing visitors to diverse, high-quality products that generate farm-gate sales and build long-term customer relationships.
