Tioga Open Farm Day will take place on June 10. Eight Tioga County Farms will open their doors to the public for a self-guided tour.
“Tioga Open Farm Day offers so many fun, tasty and exciting experiences for people of all ages! It’s not your typical farm experience. Some farms will be offering samples of food, tours, and a chance to see animals,” said Rebecca Maffei, Tioga County Tourism director.
