Always a classic family trip, Central New York offers dozens of patches where you’ll find gorgeous gourds and other goods. You might also get the full farm experience, complete with tractor pulls and petting zoos.
CNYFresh packs 562 farms, agri-businesses and attractions into one place. Visit some of the region’s best U-picks, locavore restaurants, family spots and sweet treats.
With Halloween just around the corner, ghosts and goblins aren’t the only spirits you should be thinking about. Central New York complements its endless craft brew offerings with homegrown, handcrafted beverages of another variety. Savor a sip from some of New York’s finest cideries, distilleries and wineries in Brew Central, America’s Craft Brew Destination. A great place to visit during the fall is 1911 Spirits at Beak & Skiff Orchards. The 100-year legacy of cultivating the apples there ensures that the hard cider and spirit production go from “tree to bottle,” so it’s always fresh and delicious. It is one of only a few in the country distilling gin and vodka from apples!
