Welcome to Abbott Farms

Summer is almost here!  Crops are growing, flowers are being planted, picnic tables repaired, winter ideas are coming to life,  Four Daughters Wine and Cidery is moving forward, and despite the rain, our strawberries are starting to blush!  A little more sunshine will do the trick.  The wait is worth it for Abbott’s juicy red strawberries!  Keep checking our facebook page for pick your own dates and store availability.  Come on Sun!!

Our piglets have arrived and are getting settled in their pen.  They were named the moment our handler laid eyes on them.  Oreo and Doublestuff!  Come over for a visit and see why it was an obvious choice.  

Our new bunnies and ducklings should be here by late June.  Baby chicks may not come until Fall.  A nice addition for our Barnyard for fall visitors.

Early Childhood Care from Auburn, NY recently came for a fun tour of the farm.  The goats were so happy to see the kiddies!  Despite the gloomy weather they had a great time on the covered wagon, learning about growing and animals.  The group made a day of it with lunch and entertainment in our Greenhouse Event Room.  Thank you Early Childhood Care for coming to visit Abbott Farms!

Birthday parties have been happening on weekends!  Our most recent party was held on a very rainy Sunday and everyone had a great time.  The comment was given “this party was better than Skyzone!” Thank you for coming and having fun on the farm.  Happy Birthday Tyler!
