CE-MR-7-Schoharie Farm Day7by Elizabeth A. Tomlin
Folks from as far away as New York City had an opportunity to visit working farms, see the diversity of Schoharie farms and their products and view the remarkable recovery progress from the 2011 flooding, during the inaugural Schoharie County Family Farm Day that took place on Saturday, Aug. 17.
Twenty-two farms and three farmers’ markets participated in welcoming visitors.
Visitors were given tours, received samples and had the opportunity to participate in a variety of farm activities and demonstrations.
This event was organized by Cornell Cooperative Extension Program Leader David Cox and was provided by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schoharie and Otsego Counties, Schoharie County Tourism, many participating sponsors and Schoharie Area Long Term (SALT) flood recovery.
