Pick Your Own at Outhouse Orchards

Walk up to the barn and grab yourself a half bushel, pick your own bag and take a tour of our orchard as you find the best apples to fill your bag with. Come early or come late there will always be apples, pears and peaches to pick through the months of September and October even if you have to barrow a pole picker for hard to reach apples, pears and peaches. Pre-pay $20.00 (15 lbs of fruit) or $30.00 (30 lbs of fruit) for your apple bag and the orchard and it’s glorious views are yours for the day. In order to ensure the safety of all of our guests and employees this fall season we will be implementing a reservation policy for those wanting to visit the farm. The purpose of this so that we can better control the large volume of visitors to the farm to ensure social distancing is maintained and CDC procedures are followed. Feel free to visit the farm during the week without reservations (EXCEPT ON HOLIDAYS AS RESERVATIONS WILL BE REQUIRED). Please check our website or Facebook page for updates. We look forward to seeing everyone at the farm. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to message the farm here on Facebook. The first apples we will be picking are our Macintosh and Gala varieties. See you soon !

What to the Black Woman is the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment?

This presentation by Dr. Susan Goodier, Assistant Professor of History at SUNY Oneonta, seeks to illuminate the experience of the suffrage movement for women of color in New York State and why it is important to better acknowledge their involvement in the passage of the 19th Amendment. Without a clear and comprehensive understanding of the social and political activism of Black women, we do not yet know the full story of women’s suffrage. Black women operated in complicated networks that stretched from community to community, from city to city, and from state to state. By looking more closely at New York State and its Black women activists, we can learn not just about the strategies Black women used to gain the right to vote but about the networks they created to facilitate this achievement.

Key Bank Rochester Fringe Festival

Since its debut in 2012, the Fringe has drawn more than a half million visitors from all over the world to over 3,600 diverse performances and events. In fact, Rochester’s not-for-profit Fringe has become one of the largest and most successful fringe festivals in the nation, the largest multi-genre arts festival in New York State, and one of the region’s most anticipated festivals each year.

This year’s Virtual Fringe will feature over 170 productions from the Rochester area, the region, and around the world! Like an in-person festival, shows will be ticketed or free. Also, new this year, approximately half of the shows will be available on-demand 24/7 (like Netflix) and half will be live streamed at certain dates/times (like an in-person experience.)
