Hay rides are popular at the annual Farm City Day.


CCE-Tompkins hosts events throughout the year that connect young and older residents alike with our local and regional agriculture. These include fun family events such as "Farm City Day" -- which opens a working farm to visitors for a day; "AgStravaganza!" which brings farming to the Shops at Ithaca Mall; the CSA Fair which enables consumers to meet farmers from a number of different CSA farms in the region; and a range of educational events coordinated through CCE's Ag-in-the-Classroom program that connect local school-aged children directly with many facets of local agriculture.

Visit our Upcoming Events to find events that will interest to you and your family!
