Open house participants line up for hay wagon rides. More then 500 people took a wagon ride around the Miner Institute facilities during their open house Aug 10.
On Saturday, Aug. 10, approximately 900 people attended an open house at Miner Institute in Chazy.
The goal of the open house, the first at Miner Institute in nearly five years, was to highlight the educational programs available at the facility, as well as to showcase their Heart’s Delight Farm Heritage Exhibit.
More than 500 people were treated to wagon rides over the course of the day. The Institute also presented two Miner Morgan equine demonstrations.
Visitors enjoyed local agricultural products, with creamies from Parker Family Maple Farm, Agri-Mark cheese, and apples from Rulfs Orchards.
Miner Institute also plans on unveiling an “Agriculture and Society” speakers series in the fall, in order to “better engage and inform the general public” on the role agriculture has played and continues to play in society.
Miner Institute is open to the general public for self-guided tours during regular business hours throughout the year.
