You’ll Love Your Visit!

Abbott Farms is a family-owned u-pick farm near Syracuse in Central New York. Founded in 1866, it’s a unique blend of historical buildings and working farm life. Winners of a NYS Agritourism grant, Abbott Farms’ goal is to share the joy of living close to the land with urban and suburban neighbors.

A stroller-worthy road through the heart of the farm connects a corn maze, pumpkin patch, u-pick orchard, barnyard, goldfish pond, greenhouse, food concession, cider press, raspberry patch, and grazing pasture for our beef cows.

Abbott Farms’ season starts in mid April with the baby animals beginning to arrive  in our barnyard. By the end of June, the animals should all be here. Strawberry picking starts in  early June, with sweet cherries and summer raspberries soon after. Our sweet corn and blueberries come in July. Apples start in mid-August and Italian prunes ripen by early to mid September.

Fall Festival Days — Saturdays and Sundays from the weekend after Labor Day to Halloween — raise the level of excitement with our tube slides, bounce house, face-painting, corn maze, apple cannon& slingshots and wagon rides. Watch us press cider and sample the sweet results. Dress for the weather and bring your camera.

Enjoy leisurely shopping at Abbott Farms Country Store, where you’ll find our own brown eggs, free range beef, local maple and honey products, and cheeses. We also have an ice cream shoppe, slushies – featuring standard flavors and seasonal favorites made with our own fruit, and a bakery where you will find pies and cookies to please everyone’s sweet tooth! We  make our own fudge on-site in more than a dozen flavors. Seasonal delicacies include apple fritters, caramel apples, and cider.

Our new Four Daughters Wine and Cidery will open soon offering an array of our own hard ciders and wine.  Our Cider House has a viewing window of our cider production and will become a tasting room in the near future.

Abbott Farms has sheltered eating areas, picnic tables, paved parking, and handicapped-accessible indoor restrooms. We book corporate parties, birthday parties, and flashlight mazes. We also host educational school tours and guided group tours by reservation. An average fall visit is 2 – 4 hours but many people make a day of it.
