Open Farm Day
Madison County farms will open their gates for Open Farm Day on Saturday, July 30, 2022, from 10 am to 4pm! The 2022 Passport is not complete yet but stay tuned for more details! We currently do not have any producer's meetings planned, but please continue to check your email for updates. If you were involved in Open Farm Day in the past, or if you have questions about how to be involved for the first time, please contact Tess.
In the meantime, you can revel in last year's Open Farm Day or keep up to date on the event at www.OpenFarmDayMadisonCounty.com.
SPONSORSHIP: Sponsors are an essential part of making Open Farm Day a success! Each year Open Farm Day, which attracts around 5,000 visitors from 22 states to tour Madison County farms, is kept free and open to the public by the generous sponsorship of farm and community organizations. We offer a wide range of sponsorship packages, all of which include advertising opportunities. This year Open Farm Day will be featured on local radio and television stations, have 20,000 passports printed, distribute 2,000 giveaway bags, and be featured in print publications. Sponsoring Open Farm Day is a win-win for supporting local farms and getting the word out about your organization. We hope that you will consider contributing to Open Farm Day 2022. For more information contact Melissa Davis at email@example.com or 315.684.3001 ext. 101.
Thank you for your support.
FARM REGISTRATION: Open Farm Day registration is open for 2022. As an inclusive event, any kind of farm operation in Madison County is welcome to participate. Participation does require some commitments on the part of farms. We encourage all farms to carefully read through and consider participation requirements before deciding whether or not taking part in Open Farm Day is a good fit for their farm. If you have any questions or concerns regarding participation requirements or Open Farm Day policies, please do not hesitate to contact Megan Henderson, Ag Subject Educator, at 315-684-3001, ext 126.
We would like to thank all of the farms that have taken part in Open Farm Day since its inception. Each year we have farms return and new farms join us. This event draws visitors from around the county and even some from out of state. Let's keep up the great work we are doing to make Madison County farms a terrific place to visit. Madison County farms and Open Farm Day provide a great opportunity for the public to become more informed of the importance of agriculture.
