First, get the map
Pick up a beautiful, free, folding map at participating farms, markets, restaurants and other businesses, from brochure racks all over Ulster and Dutchess counties, from highway rest stop brochure racks, or from us.
Next, explore the Rondout Valley
Vegetable, fruit, dairy, flower, herb, livestock, nursery, tree, seed and horse farms, good restaurants, fascinating museums and collections--we've got them all in the Rondout Valley!
Meet the locals
You will love meeting some of the most powerful and creative people in the valley, and they're looking forward to meeting you.
Each numbered spot on the map has a unique art sticker for you--as you add them your map will become more colorful. Each sticker tells a story and will remind you of your visit.
When you collect 10 stickers, you will be awarded 4 Homegrown Mini-Golf passes and a Stick to Local Farms Cookbook (a $25 value). When you collect 25 of the stickers you'll get a market bag of farmy treats and products (priceless!). And if you collect all 37 stickers, your name will be added to a small pool for a random drawing to win a weekend for four at Pine Ridge Dude Ranch and Resort! To claim a prize, just send us a selfie with your stickered-up map and your name and address.
Here is a link to the Google map where you can see the all the places you can collect stickers--addresses, hours of operation, websites and more. You can also check out our Tours menu (above) for themed, bicycle, group, and self-guided tours!
As you visit each place you'll collect great stories and photos, too! Share them on your Facebook page, on Instagram or Twitter and tag them #stick2local!
