Things to Do
Farm Stores and Farm Stands
I’m so excited that you found me so I can tell you all about the farm fresh delights in Ontario County! Are you having fun exploring our Activity Guide? I enjoyed putting it together for you! Let’s have some fun, learning more about why I think it’s important for you to know where your food comes from and introduce you to farm stands that have been run by families for generations.
In the Finger Lakes, we believe it's important to know where your food comes from. Nothing beats farm fresh products harvested by the folks who have been growing in the region for generations. "Farm to plate" is not just an idea here, but a way of life.

Red Jacket Orchards' farm store in Geneva sells fruits, ciders, and all kinds of cold-pressed juices.
Roadside farm stands are a must-do for our visitors. These range from small shacks in front of farm homes where family members are on call to help you to self-service carts on the side of the road where you put your cash in the coffee can and pick out your field fresh family treats. If you're camping in our area, make sure you get all those fresh veggies to be the envy of all your neighbors.
Our friends at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ontario County have put together a local food guide that will help you locate farm vendors and markets in our area.
