Family Farm Day Registration Deadline Extended to May 18th!

Written By Editor on 5/9/22 | 5/9/22

Preparations for Family Farm Day (FFD) are well underway! August 27, 2022, marks ten years of FFD, a popular agritourism event which celebrates high-quality local goods and foods, diverse educational experiences, and fun on the farm for the whole family. FFD began in 2013 as solely a Schoharie County event. Four years later Otsego County farmers joined in, followed by Delaware County farms in 2018, developing into the tri-county event we know today. Dozens of small farms will open their doors to the public, offering a glimpse behind the scenes into the daily life of a local farming operation. Visitors enjoy hands-on demonstrations and educational activities, tours and rides, samples and tastings of local foods and beverages, and of course, plenty of shopping! FFD is a wonderful way to showcase the never-ending variety of farm-fresh products that our region has to offer.


If you are a farm in Schoharie, Otsego, or Delaware Counties, Cornell Cooperative Extension cordially welcomes your participation. Take this opportunity to advertise your products to diverse markets, gain new customers, and educate your local community about farming. Farm registrations are being accepted through Friday, May 18, 2022. Information, including eligibility, registration, contacts, and agritourism resources are available online at


Looking for advertising opportunities? As one of the most important agritourism events in our region, communities near and far come to support our local farms and other area businesses. Sponsorship brings you visibility among an annual average of sixty participating farms from all three counties, as well as the hundreds of local families and thousands of tourists who visit on Family Farm Day. Our county tourism partners strongly support our promotional efforts, helping to maximize your business' visibility. Currently all advertising space has been filled, but we are looking for sponsors for custom branded apparel! Please contact Jessica Holmes for more details.
