Many farms participate, hoping to start a tradition
The first “Farm Trail Day” held Oct. 8 was a “huge success,” according to Steuben County Cooperative Extension Executive Director Tess McKinley.
The day featured an invitation to visit five farms representing the wide range of agricultural enterprises in the county, from goats, sheep and bison to farm produce.
Family-friendly activities included wagon rides, demonstrations, crafts, animals to pet and products for purchase.
Participating farms were Crooked Line Apple Orchard in Bath, “Veggie Van” sponsors Lowery Family Farms in Campbell, Mud Creek Bison Ranch in Savona, the Stewart Family Farm in Howard, and ZiegenVine Homestead in Savona. Organizers hope the day becomes an annual tradition in Steuben County.
