Permits for motorized vehicles at Empire Farm Days

Those who need to use motorized vehicles to move about the 300-acre outdoor Empire Farm Days event at Rodman Lott & Son Farms in Seneca Falls, NY, can now rent golf carts on-site. Those with their own golf cart must call ahead to qualify their own vehicle for a handicapped permit. Those interested in renting can call ahead to the show office at 877-697-7837 for information on reserving a rented golf cart. “Because Empire Farm Days is an outdoor pedestrian show, we must limit the use of motorized personal transport to on-site rental golf carts and qualified personal golf carts by special permit,” says Empire Farm Days Manager Melanie Wickham. Service dogs are the only dogs allowed at the event that showcases the latest in agricultural equipment, services and research with activities, equipment demonstrations, test driving opportunities, information exhibits, and interaction with more than 600 representatives of agricultural interests. Empire Farm Days includes DairyProfit seminars, live animals, Equine Center round pen demonstrations, farm safety and family life displays; the latest information from Cornell University, eight USDA agencies, New York Farm Bureau, NY Beef Industry Council, and many others. Show hours are 9am-5pm on Tuesday, August 7 and Wednesday, August 8, and 9am-4pm on Thursday, August 9; admission is free; parking is $10.
