Anyone who wants to find out about the diversity of agriculture in Central New York needs to go to Open Farm Day July 27 in Madison County.
During the annual event, about 40 farms open their doors, barns and fields to people who want to come in, tour and learn about the various products and animals produced in Madison County.
Farms vary from dairy operations with Holsteins to vegetable and egg farms to places raising beef, pork and lamb to maple, cider, wine and honey to buffalo, elk and alpacas and even a bit of horticulture with plants and flowers.
The event is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday "featuring lots of local food, farm tours, farm rides, free samples and
farm animals," according to the website.
