Despite the fact the corn maze is underwater at the moment; we anticipate the sun will be shining Saturday September 24th for the 2011 Steuben County Farm-City Day. This great event is travelling south to the village of Canisteo this year. The Moss-VanWie Farm, owned by Cliff and Deb Moss, will host the annual event.

Farm-City Day is an educational, fun filled day on the farm where the public can get a first hand, behind the scenes look at how a modern dairy farm operates.  Petting baby calves, picking a souvenir pumpkin, getting lost in the corn maze, milking a cow by hand, watching baby chicks, and playing in a giant pile of corn are just a  few of the fun activities families can participate in.  Agribusinesses will be on hand to answer questions about farming and how the food you consume is produced.  A petting zoo will feature baby calves, goats, sheep, bunnies, alpacas, pot-bellied pigs, and other animals.  This family event is free and open to the public, everyone is welcome to attend.

Come out and celebrate agriculture at the 11th annual Steuben County Farm-City Day Saturday September 24th! Don’t miss the fun at the Moss-VanWie Farm in Canisteo from 10:00am – 3:00pm.  The farm is located on State Route 36, just east of the Village of Canisteo.
