Enjoy fabulous food and family fun on the farm while benefiting Groundswell’s new farmer training programs!
Do something different! Treat yourself to a fun and delicious afternoon on one of the most fascinating and innovative farms in the Finger Lakes. Good Life Farm in Interlaken is one of Groundswell’s Partner Farms. Working with draft horses, Melissa Madden and Garrett Miller grow organic apples, peaches, asparagus, ginger, veggies, turkeys, and beef. Their latest project is the fabulous new Finger Lakes Cider House, a state of the art cider brewing facility shared with four other local cider makers.
Bring friends and family! Take a horse-drawn tour the organic orchards and greenhouses. Check out the grazing turkeys and beef cattle. Upstairs in the Cidery, enjoy a flight of distinctive ciders crafted by local farm-based cider makers, and try pairing them with an array of local farmstead cheeses, hand-crafted charcuterie, artisanal breads and spreads. Then explore the actual workings of the cidery below, learn how fine ciders are made, and get the latest on the cider renaissance that’s happening now in the Finger Lakes.
