Agritourism

Malone and northern Franklin County as a whole has a rich history planted firmly in agriculture which is readily apparant when spending time here. In addition to the thousands of acres of farm land used to grow crops for feeding dairy cattle, you'll also find apple orchards, fields of berry picking, and plenty of roadside farm stands.

 

If you're passing through Burke, NY, you'll find several Amish roadside stands where you can purchase fresh produce. The Malone Durfort Airport is also host to the weekly farmers' market which takes place every Wednesday from May - October from 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m..

North Bangor is home to an Alpaca farm. Spend a day visiting this farm and learning about the alpacas and how the farmer uses their wool. As you're leaving stop by the shop and browse their selection of socks, scarves, and other woolen gifts made from wool straight from the farm.

If horses are your thing, you'll be happy to know that nearby Brushton is home to Mayville's Relax & Ride Stables. Mayville's offers horseback riding lesssons and trail rides.
 

Burke is also home to the Almazo Wilder Homestead which is the boyhood home of Almanzo, made popular by his wife Laura Ingalls Wilder. Laura was the author of "Farmer Boy" which takes place on this farm. Laura was also known for authoring the "Little House on The Prarie" books.
