Routes:

We offer two routes to choose from: a 15-mile route suitable for recreational riders and a 35-mile route suitable for intermediate riders.  Both routes begin and end at Hand Melon Farm.

The 15-mile route travels south on Rt. 40 through many protected farms and head north on 113 along the Hudson River.  Stops include Sunset View Farm, Ensign Brook Farm, and Booth Farm.

On the 35-mile route, we will initially travel south on the western side of the Hudson, through the Saratoga National Historical Park, and then head north on the eastern side of the river.  (For those who rode last year, this route is in the reverse direction.)   Stops include the Schuyler House, the McMahon Thoroughbred Farm, the Nielson House inside the Park, and Quincy Farm.

We kindly urge everyone who participates in Tour de Farm to have appropriate equipment, bring water, and dress for the weather.

  1. Now that I just read the ASA website (and realized that the tour starts at Hand Melon Farm) I hope to reach out and share that Lant Hill Farm B and B (www.lanthill.com) has space that week for riders or fans. The B and B is about10 miles from the start line!. Contact sue@lanthill.com for more info.
