Palmer Farms to Host Farm-City Day Again!
For the first time in Steuben County Farm-City Day history the event will re-visit one of our former host farms! Brothers Randy & Gary Palmer hosted the event in 2005 and have agreed to open their farm to the public once again. Palmer Farms LLC, located in Howard, is home to 525 milk cows and another 500 heifers and calves. They farm approximately 800 acres of corn, 750 acres hay, and 100 acres of oats.
On Saturday September 28th from 10am – 3pm, visitors can pet baby calves, pick a pumpkin, take a wagon ride, get lost in a corn maze, milk a cow by hand, hold a baby chick, and play in a giant pile of corn. Families can participate in many more farm friendly games and activities at the upcoming Farm-City Day. Local farmers and farm businesses will be on hand to answer questions. Local growers will have fresh farm products to sample and sell.
Farm-City Day is an educational, fun filled day on the farm where the public can get a first hand, behind the scenes look at how a modern dairy farm operates. Food & ice cream will be available from several community organizations.
Palmer Farms is located at 7164 Palmer Road, Hornell. Use the Howard exit off I-86 and follow the signs. The event is free and open to the public. For more information visit the Farm-City Day website at www.steubencountyfarmday.com or find them on facebook!
