(10/1) Barn Tour

Our first Barn Tour fundraiser is Sunday, October 1st, from 11AM to 4PM!
Take a self-guided tour of structures in the Hobart-Bloomville-Bovina area that characterize our region’s agricultural heritage and hilly farmland. Get an up-close look at iconic bank and ramp-style barns, the cupolas that decorate and ventilate them, their timber frames, and the stone foundations upon which they are built.
You’ll explore both traditional and innovative dairy operations, horse stables, and repurposed barns. Additional attractions include a fleet of working vintage tractors, amazing chicken coops, beautiful duck ponds, stately draft horses, sloe-eyed cows, and gaggles of geese.
Professor Cynthia Falk, author of Barns of New York: Rural Architecture of the Empire State, will be on-site at the first barn to provide introductory information about barn history and architecture.

Tickets for the Barn Tour are $16 per person, to benefit The WKC. Pre-registration is required to receive directions to the first barn. For more information, email caitlyn@westkc.org, or purchase tickets online before 3PM on Friday, September 29. Everyone must start the tour no later than 1PM and end by 4PM. It will be held rain or shine.
