For more than 200 years, apples, cheese and butter, grain and corn, vegetables, oxen and dairy cows have been grown, managed, cultivated, and raised in the Champlain valley. On this southern Clinton County tour, embark on an agricultural adventure to explore a range of homesteads, Century Farms and barns dating from the early 19th century to the present day.
Get a farming introduction at the Babbie Rural and Farm Learning Museum before touring historic and active farms, such as the Keese Homestead, Remillard Dairy Farm, Forrence Orchards, and the North Country Creamery. See animals, walk an orchard, sample products and savor the flavors of our Lake Champlain bounty. Round out the day with a visit to the Ausable Brewing Company for a frosty local beverage and sample locally-made tacos from the Mace Chasm Farm food truck (optional).
This outing will be led by AARCH’s Steven Engelhart.
The tour begins at 10:00 am and ends around 4:00 pm.
The fee is $45 for AARCH members and $55 for non-members.
