U-Pick Opportunities Are All Around!

Farm to Fork Experiences

Ithaca can be whatever you want it to be, a relaxing oasis on the rolling hillside, or a colorful and adventurous city to explore. From U-pick and family-friendly experiences, to live music and spectacular culinary experiences, Ithaca has the vibe you’re looking for. Ithaca is the perfect place to refresh yourself: Expand your taste buds, pick your own food, or wake up in a farm cottage all your own. With more restaurants per capita than NYC, numerous wineries/cideries/breweries/distilleries, artisan cheese makers, local butcher shops, and an underlying foodie culture, Ithaca is ideal for those who want a new taste of life.

Eve's Cidery
Join us for a private in-depth tasting in the cider barn. The appointment lasts for about 1 hour and you can expect your host to pour a range of ciders, discuss farming and production methods and give a tour of the working cidery. 

Gourds grown, dried, and crafted on the land. Carve scenic images, fun patterns, or cute characters into your gourd ... from lamps to vases, dollhouses, nightlights, and more, visitors to Gourdlandia are delighted at what can emerge from a gourd. Check their calendar or call for availability. 

Trying to fully immerse yourself? Stay at one of our farm cottages, B&Bs, and glamping options.
