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 event space, food concession, cider press, and grazing pasture for our beef cows.
Abbott Farms’ is open all year. The growing 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, corn crawl, 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 our unique 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 Grand Wine and Cidery will open soon offering an array of our own hard ciders and wine.
Abbott Farms has sheltered eating areas, picnic tables, paved parking, and handicapped-accessible indoor restrooms. We book weddings, 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.
