Spend an autumn day at these working farms in Thurman!
The Thurman Fall Farm Tour showcases maple producers, a goat and sheep farm, sanctuaries, a tree farm and lumber mill promoting sustainable forestry, and more. This self-guided tour offers nine unique sites.
Visit farms over 200 years old and others which have been carved out of the woodlands in this decade. Children's activities, trebuchet pumpkin chunkin', and animal encounters are some of the fun you will experience. Shop for cheeses, jams, jellies, quilts, organic vegetables and meats, and artisan wares. Take wagon rides, taste maple products, explore a goat and sheep dairy farm, visit a horse ranch, and see a Dutch timber frame barn being reconstructed. Learn about sugaring, mushrooms, medicinal plants, and more!
Start your day with a pancake breakfast at Valley Road Maple Farm. Mike and Ralph serve up fluffy, all you can eat pancakes topped with pure Valley Road maple syrup Oscar's Adirondack Smokehouse maple sausages. Breakfast is served from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. If you're still hungry after breakfast, enjoy a barn loft buffet luncheon at Nettle Meadow Farm from 12:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m.
Download and print your passport to win prizes, or you can pick up one at any of our stops!
Make sure to have your passport punched at each site you visit. No matter how many punches you have, when you visit your last farm of the day, fill out the passport stub and deposit the whole card in the collection tub at that farm. At 4:15pm that day, a drawing will be held at Nettle Meadow Farm for a grand prize gift basket (valued at $200), and a second prize basket (valued at $100).
