Explore Farm Fest 2017

Bridge Street

For the second year in a row the public is invited to explore working farms in Onondaga County to see where their food comes from.

Dave Skeval, Director of the Cornell Cooperative Extension heads up the event which will feature eight different farms this year from across the county. The event, Skeval says, is an opportunity for farmers and visitors to get a first hand look of the different farming opportunities that exist right here in our own backyards.

Jess Lyons of the Brady Farm in the city of Syracuse has been working on the urban farm for the last two years. They are currently farming on two of the six acres that they own and they produce mixed vegetables that can be bought at the Regional Farmer’s Market and at their farm.

The farm is a great way to bring local home grown food to tables around the city and to help educate everyone in and around the area on the importance of local farming in Syracuse.

Farmfest 2017 kicks off on Saturday September 9 from 10am to 3pm. Eight different farms from across the county will showcase a diversity of agriculture production including dairy, beef, vegetables, apples, hops and field crops.
