For over a decade, this unique Winnakee event has celebrated the rich agricultural history and architecture of the Hudson Valley and today’s working farms. The “Barn Tour” is a truly signature event of the region and a beloved fall activity, drawing history buffs, families, architecture aficionados, cyclists, motorcyclists, and those who appreciate the Hudson Valley’s rural character. Each year, the tour highlights a different area of northern Dutchess County, with rare inside views of some of the region’s most spectacular historic barns and offering fun working farms demonstrations and tastings. The tour ends with a barn stomping reception with music, dancing, farm fresh foods, specialty brewed beers and an old fashioned community pie contest. Photo credits: Carol Pedersen, Capturing Moments.
