The Best Gifts from Schoharie County

BOVINA — Farming Bovina is thrilled to host another Bovina Farm Day on Sunday, September 1, 2024, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm. 

Hosted by a non-profit organization, Farming Bovina, this annual celebration of the area’s rich agricultural traditions returns to Crescent Valley Road in Bovina for a day of family fun on Labor Day Weekend.  

"Bovina Farm Day is a great way to experience Delaware County farm life, past and present. From the giant haystack slide to the butchering demonstration, there's really something for everybody. It's always a wonderful day!" said Evelyn Stewart-Barnhart, President of Farming Bovina.

Bovina Farm Day is an opportunity for visitors to meet farmers, experience a variety of farm animals, find local food and discover products made in the area in the large vendor tent. Bovina Farm Day is a family-friendly event with lots of activities to engage children. The activities of the day include farm animals, antique engine demonstrations, vintage tractor displays, hayrides, treasure hunts, games, and a hands-on butter making demonstration and maple candy making. Dairy farm tours and a chance to visit the historic Maynard Schoolhouse are other highlights of this day of family fun. 

Guests are encouraged to enter the annual Best Apple Pie and Apple Dessert Contests. There is also a Scarecrow Competition. Stake, cross-arms, and hay will be provided, while those who enter the contest will supply the creativity and sheer determination to outshine the other scarecrows on the field. Entering the contest costs $10.

Under the marketplace tent,  farmers, producers, and artisans will be selling locally produced meats, cheeses, vegetables, baked goods, maple products, honey, flowers, and craft items. Additionally, breakfast, lunch and coffee will be available during the event.

The price of admission for this day of family fun is $5.00 per person, with children under 12 free. Bovina Farm Day is made possible with the generous support of Pure Catskills, an economic initiative of the Watershed Agriculture Council with funding from NYC DEP and several other generous sponsors. 

To ensure the safety and comfort of the farm animals, NO dogs can be admitted at Farm Day.
