Farm Tour at Essex Farm

September 2 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

The tour leaves from the barnyard with the Kimballs at 10am and will cover the vegetable fields, pasture, and livestock areas.

Participants should bring all-weather clothing and sturdy rubber boots and expect a long walk over rough terrain. There will be a potluck lunch at noon in the farmyard. Bring a dish to share and your own place setting. After lunch, there will be the opportunity to take a self-guided hike along the farm roads to some of the farm’s more remote areas.

Essex Farm is an 1100-acre farm that produces a full diet, year-round, for 300 members, including milk, meats, vegetables, fruits and grains. The farm is powered by a combination of tractors, solar panels, draft horses and a little magic. In addition to feeding the local community through the CSA Membership, Essex Farm offers weekly delivery to individual households in the Tri-Lakes Region, Albany and New York City. Essex Farm Store is open to the public everyday, from 8am-6pm.

Essex Farm is located at 2503 NYS Route 22 in Essex, one mile from the Essex-Charlotte ferry. The tour will take place rain or shine. Suggested donation: $25 adults; $5 children. FREE for local NY farmers and their families.
