The Westchester Farm Trail...
is a state-designated route connecting 13 farms and orchards from Sleepy Hollow to North Salem. Along the 17-mile trail, there’s no shortage of things to do. Hands-on experiences such as making maple syrup, interacting with livestock and even doing the farm chores let you immerse yourself in a day in the life of a farmer. Don’t miss the great tours, demonstrations and seasonal events each farm offers.
And if you want to bring a senior loved one who has difficulty walking or may need an ADA accessible bathroom, we have checked that as well.
If you see this image, we have checked to see if the local farm has ADA access to the farm stand, wheelchair accessibility and a handicap accessible bathroom.
