This year Open Farm Day will be featured on local radio and television stations, have 20,000 passports printed, distribute 2,000 giveaway bags, and be featured in print publications. Sponsoring Open Farm Day is a win-win for supporting local farms and getting the word out about your organization. We hope that you will consider contributing to Open Farm Day 2020.

We encourage all farms to carefully read through and consider participation requirements before deciding whether or not taking part in Open Farm Day is a good fit for their farm. If you have any questions or concerns regarding participation requirements or Open Farm Day policies, please do not hesitate to contact Tess Southern, Ag Subject Educator, at 315-684-3001, ext 101.
We would like to thank all of the farms that have taken part in Open Farm Day since its inception. Each year we have farms return and new farms join us. This event draws visitors from around the county and even some from out of state. Let's keep up the great work we are doing to make Madison County farms a terrific place to visit. Madison County farms and Open Farm Day provide a great opportunity for the public to become more informed of the importance of agriculture.
