A. Ooms & Sons Dairy Farm
223 Co Rd 28A, Valatie, NY 12184, USA
Authentic New YorkNo visit to the Empire State would be complete by visiting a family-owned farm. Agriculture is and will always be a driving economic force and a way of life, especially in the Hudson Valley. Bursting with staples such as apples, grapes, strawberries, cabbage, livestock, maple syrup, and dairy, many farms are proud to show off their operations through county fairs, farmers markets, and open houses.
Here in Columbia County, A. Ooms & Sons in Valatie beckons families to a 2,000 acre working dairy and crop farm where visitors can hand-feed Holstein cows (there's 450 of them), see state-of-the-art robotic milking machines, or climb onto John Deere tractors while learning about the four generations of the Ooms Family that have contributed to the farm's success since 1950 and furthermore, their farming heritage which goes as far back to 1525 in the Netherlands.
