CHAZY, N.Y. — Come learn about the research, education, and demonstration programs at Miner Institute at our Open House on Saturday, Aug. 6 from noon to 4 p.m. The event offers a great opportunity for visitors to learn about William Miner and the history of agriculture in the Heart’s Delight Farm Heritage Exhibit and to see a modern dairy and equine farm in action. This free, family-friendly event will feature wagon rides around the Institute, a new Work on the Farm exhibit, an equine demonstration, interactive displays, food truck vendors and more!
Miner Institute staff and summer interns will be available to answer questions about current agriculture practices and demonstrate some of the activities that take place at Miner on a daily basis. An equine demonstration with Miner Institute Morgan horses will take place at 1:30 p.m. Visitors will be able to see how our cows are milked in the parlor; learn about what we feed and how we house our cows; and how the research we conduct helps the dairy industry and helps to protect the environment in the Champlain Valley.
There should be a little something for everyone, so we hope you can join us!
