Please do NOT ask store employees, they DON'T know about RV stays. Really, they don't.
Txt Warren with questions AFTER reading all of this AND looking at the PROFILE PICTURE
OUR PROFILE PICTURE IS A MAP YOU NEED TO REFERENCE OR WE WILL KNOW !
TXT Warren for a better copy if you can't blow it up and read the details.
Please NO confirmations, NO call aheads, the reservation system works.
With 4-6+ rigs per night visiting, please understand we are busy farming.
Yes 12-18 hours a day. Extra time with RV arrangements may take away from our family and our sleep. So this material answers most questions. Please TXT Warren the rest.

8 minutes from I90
16 minutes from I81 downtown Syracuse
8 pm is NOT a hard arrival cut off time, we may not be around so it may be really self service.
As for last minute requests, we almost always have room, the parking lot is available as well just understand most days we open at 8 so you may need to reposition at 8. Check the map profile picture and the site descriptions below.

From time to time people ask what they can do to help, (we like your kind) we have lots of visitors to the farm and not all of them are Harvest Host or Boondockers Welcome caliber people. They leave their trash were ever, when ever, so if when you are out walking you dog or exploring the farm, random litter pick up is much appreciated.

Dog Owners, we have 3 ourselves so please !
email a picture of your rabies vaccination to [email protected]
put dog in the subject please
BY LAW THEY CAN NOT BE:
inside a food establishment (market, cidermill)
in and around the petting farm animals
in any of the crop areas (apples, cherries, berries etc)
clean up after them ! failure to do so is one way to get a bad review...

We do not have a way to reserve specific sites. It is first come first serve.
Please use sites that fit your rig, if you are towing a popup, save the 50amp sites for bigger rigs. We have several sites with electricity for a charge based on your rv plug or us, whichever is smaller, 15a $5, 30a $10, 50a $15, give to any Abbott you see. Muffled Generators are usually ok especially for big rigs in sites 2,3 and 5. Chlorinated potable water is available to fill tanks on south west corner of Market building. Dumping is available if you have a macerator pump and 50' of hose. We suggest a $5 donation for dumping. (we want to make it easier but it takes $)

This is a 5th generation farm. Read our history below. Ice cream, u-pick apples, berries, honey, maple syrup, produce, cheese, fruit jams, pickles, bakery, fudge, beef, cider press, pumpkins, and so much more! We have a corn maze, bouncing pillow, self-guided tours. Strawberries in June, Raspberries, Sweet Cherries and Blueberries in July, Blueberries and Apples in August. Sweet Cider and Apples in September and we ad Pumpkins in October. Fall festivals in Sept & Oct and other festivals throughout the year. During festivals, we have food available.

Abbott Farms Wine & Cidery is a New York State farm winery and is part of Abbott Farms in Baldwinsville. We specialize in small batch hard ciders made from apples and fruit grown on site. We invite you to experience the different tastes we have fun creating new ciders.

Warren Abbott, CEO, CFO, and all-around techhead, leads the farm. He graduated from Purdue University in 1987 with a BS in Agricultural Economics burning a hole in his pocket. He always said he went to school for three people (himself, his dad and mom) because they all valued continuing education and new ventures. Warren’s vision was for a profitable grain crop farm joined with a fall U-picking operation that would engage the residential population in Greater Baldwinsville. Over time, his vision for the farm has evolved into a full-season U-pick and entertainment destination. When Warren is not being husband or farmer he is a firearms instructor.

Warren stole Alice out of New Jersey. Alice is the Farm General manager with a long history in management and customer service. She has owned three hair salons and still styles at home by appointment.

Windsor Abbott is the fourth generation of Abbotts to farm here. He spearheaded the change from dairy production to crops in 1964. He was the innovative purchaser of welders, front-end loaders, red equipment, and strategic land. He still works 60-hour weeks running equipment, fine-tuning systems, and contributing expertise to projects and decisions.

Nancy Abbott hand-picked Windsor for her husband — in the third grade! He stole the erasers off her pencils; she smiled; and started to pray she would marry him in 5th grade, and the rest is history. She graduated from Cornell with a Home Economics degree in 1956. She taught school locally for a few years, then opened a roadside stand to sell Abbott apples and potatoes. She started the first school tours on the farm.

Nice, quite stay on a farm

We had a great couple of nights here.

Very Nice People

These people are feeding and providing produce for the rest of us and they are to be commended. We stayed on the Abbotts farm for 5 nights and loved every minute of it. They were more than accommodating and had multiple locations to park depending on our needs. The amenities on site include farm yard animals, children's play areas and a fresh produce store. Make no mistake, this is a working farm with emphasis on working. If you want to experience real farm life for a couple of days, this is the place.

So much fun!

U pick berries, fun goats and cute sheep to pet, a great little farm market (definitely try the pie)...and more...all just a stroll away. Amazing. Definitely take the opportunity to stay here, and see if you can meet some of the really lovely and generous family. You can't go wrong.

Relaxing down on the Farm

Stayed three nights at Abbott Farms. Great location between the barn and silo. Very interesting hearing the history of the Abbott Family from the owner’s Aunt. Beautiful property. Thanks for letting my stay on your property.

I spent 2 nights at Abbott Farms and didn't want to leave!

Abbott Farms is a beautiful farm with so much to do and see! The hosts were so warm, friendly, and helpful, and I had the opportunity to pick raspberries and tour the apple grove. There is a store on the farm that sells local foods and crafts, delicious baked goods, and fantastic ice cream! It was like visiting with family!

On the farm

Conveniently located and easy to access. Looking at their map photo is hard to read by phone, advance review is recommended.
Bought some goodies from the store, grass fed beef to sweets. Nice spot!

Nice Working Farm

Nice place. They kept us in 50 Amp the whole time, though we did have to move once because of an event, it was no big deal. It is a working farm, but it's still pretty quiet and they don't bother you.

Plenty for kids to do, good shade. Nice little country store on the side.

Peaceful orchard-side stay

We received a warn welcome from the elders and chose a peaceful spot to stay near the cherry orchard and the horses. We didn't use any hook ups so it was true boondocking. I would recommend this host to anyone, big rigs or small.

Wonderful

We stayed 4 nights at Abbots Farm as we had multiple medical appointments at Syracuse which was only 15 min away.
We definitely recommend and will return in the future
We also enjoyed the store they have filled with local produce, ice cream, cheese, bakery goods, fresh farm vegetables and delicious beef!
Thank you for your hospitality

Stayed 2 nights

The kids absolutely loved the slides, animals and ice cream! The Abbott family is super friendly. We met the owners and a couple others. It was quiet at night and just what we expected.

Would definitely stay again!

Quiet place to rest. The kids loved the farm animals, especially feeding the goats. They had lots of fun on the tunnel slides. We enjoyed the store and ice cream. If we are back through there we would stay again.

Lovely Farm

While our stay was short, we really enjoyed the farm. It was peaceful and quiet and they have a small market where they sell pantry items, milk and farm fresh eggs, and ice cream. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed talking about the farm and the crops they grow. Great place for families!

Wonderful farm with plenty of spots

This was a perfect place for a stopover near Syracuse. The host was very responsive when we had questions. There are many spots to choose from with lots of space. We have a 38' travel trailer and had no issues. The kids loved all the animals and the kids play area. It was only about 10 minutes to shopping, restaurants and grocery stores.
