The 2015 fall season at Schuyler Farms is over. But don't fret, you can still pick up your Christmas trees at the end of November. Schuyler Farms is ready and excited to welcome you in 2016.
Schuyler Farms grew into an agritourism haven out of their dairy farm origins over 50 years ago. In doing so, they added a plethora of fun activities for family and friends to enjoy. Turn these activities into longtime family traditions. The farm also welcomes birthday parties and class field trips.
Whether you're picking out a pumpkin or munching on a donut, Schuyler Farms covers all the bases. Here's what you can expect in 2016.
1. Gemstone and Fossil Mining
Participants young and old enjoy this hands-on activity. Watch as the water washes away the dirt and uncovers your hidden treasure.
