Abbey Farm, an 1800s Historical Farm

Come and experience life on an 1800s farmstead in the heart of the Finger Lakes, located at 1862 Rts. 5 & 20. Tour the barn and farmyard full of farm animals. Learn about the history of the family and how animals were cared for and used on a Victorian family farm. History will come alive as a costumed guide retells the highlights of happenings in New York and America during the late 1800s. Experience a hands-on pioneer class, such as candle dipping, rope making, and woodworking. Take a ride on a vintage horse-drawn buggy and visit the old time General Store.

The Farm House Bed and Breakfast offers the best in overnight hospitality. Choose from our three guest rooms; The Victorian Room, The Homesteader Room, or spend the night in Gramma’s Attic. In the morning enjoy a farm-cooked meal prepared in the good ol’ fashioned way.
