A little snow on the ground won’t stop Harlem Valley Farm and Food Alliance from kicking off their second Farm Day on March 25 from 10am to 5pm. Featuring guest vendor coffee roasters and bread bakers, farm tours, and activities like barnyard scavenger hunt, Farm Day is a great way to enjoy and support Harlem Valley farmers and businesses.

Founded by Will Vincent of Brookby Dairy, Mark Soukup of Soukup Farm, and Josh Viertel of Harlem Valley Homestead, the Harlem Valley Farm and Food Alliance is a group of next generation farmers and natural resource-focused entrepreneurs in southeastern Dutchess who’ve banded together to support each other’s businesses by exchanging goods and spreading the word about their fellow farmers. Alliance members, feeling a drag in their southeastern Dutchess business, seek to energize their community with fresh local products and agriculture.

Farm Day falls on the last day of Soukup Farm’s Maple Weekend, which will feature a maple breakfast buffet from 9am-1pm and other maple product sampling all day. Down the road, Hoofprint Cheese Company is at the peak of its kidding season and will have baby goats to bounce around with, as well as a milking demonstration. There will be more baby animal fun at Locust Hill Market, where you can feed calves after you go on a barnyard scavenger hunt. Along with their growing calves and goats, J.S.K. Cattle Company will have chicken poop bingo, a game you surely have never played. And Brookby Dairy will be demonstrating how to milk the cows that produce their award-winning raw milk.

While some events, like the hourly hayrides, are all day, other events, like the oddly alluring chicken poop bingo, are not. Be sure to check out the event schedule so you don’t miss anything.
