Malone and northern Franklin County as a whole has a rich history planted firmly in agriculture which is readily apparant when spending time here. In addition to the thousands of acres of farm land used to grow crops for feeding dairy cattle, you'll also find apple orchards, fields of berry picking, and plenty of roadside farm stands.
If you're passing through Burke, NY, you'll find several Amish roadside stands where you can purchase fresh produce. The Malone Durfort Airport is also host to the weekly farmers' market which takes place every Wednesday from May - October from 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m..
North Bangor is home to an Alpaca farm. Spend a day visiting this farm and learning about the alpacas and how the farmer uses their wool. As you're leaving stop by the shop and browse their selection of socks, scarves, and other woolen gifts made from wool straight from the farm.
Leave No Trace
The magic of the Adirondacks is the result of previous generations taking a long view and protecting the mountains, lakes, and rivers within the Blue Line. That tradition continues today as we support and encourage everyone to practice Leave No Trace ethics, which help protect the lands and waters of the Adirondacks.
