SARATOGA SPRINGS – If you haven’t already visited Pitney Meadows Community Farm, this Sunday, Oct. 8 may be a good time to do so.

Reaching out to the community in its first full year of operation on the 166-acre farm, Pitney Meadows is hosting “Family Fun Day” from 1 to 5 p.m. 

Activities will include horse-drawn wagon rides every 10 minutes with Mike Fields from the Washington County Draft Animal Association, plus guided tours every hour on the history and future of Pitney Farm.

Children and adults also will enjoy an obstacle course with a 19-foot slide, plus a farm-themed interactive fun area for toddlers. Alpacas will be on site from 1 to 3 p.m., courtesy of Woodland Meadow Farm, and other animals will be there for a small petting zoo.

People with limited mobility can be accommodated, but not dogs or other pets.

Pitney Meadows Community Farm is located at 223 West Avenue, directly across from the Saratoga YMCA.  For more information, visit or call 518-290-0008.
