My name is Jerry, and I’d like to share the story of our family farm
Over 50 years ago Anna and Silk
Macica settled down in historic Schuylerville, NY to build an honest
life centered on hard work and family values. Raising seven
children and running a dairy farm was a challenging, but rewarding life.
Years after the passing of our Dad (We lost Dad in 1984 and in 2008 we
sadly lost our loving and caring Mom), it was realized that like so many
other farms, we could not support our families with the dairy business
alone. Reluctantly, it was decided that we must change our
business, sell the cows and adapt to the changing environment around us.
My brothers, Tom, Ken and I put our heads together and redefined our
family dairy farm into a place that now has something for everyone.
We felt that an agritourism and family fun center would not only keep
our family farm alive, but also benefit our community and establish
traditions for years to follow. Our family has enjoyed the
beautiful countryside and breathtaking sunsets at Schuyler Farms for
generations, and now we invite you to come and share it with us.
When the doors of Schuyler Farms
opened to the public for the first time in August of 2002, we proudly
displayed our first corn maze that was created, designed, cut and
maintained by my brothers and me. Over the past several years we
have designed many more themes into our maze, and continue to proudly
state that we are responsible for the entire process from the idea to
the hands on creation. Every year we welcome more families
that return to “get lost” in our corn maze. In addition to the
maze, we offer many more attractions such as hayrides, pick-your-own
pumpkins, miniature golf, gemstone & fossil mining, petting zoo, gift
shop, farm fresh snacks, haunted corn maze, a complete garden center,
incredible sunsets, and so much more!
… The Brothers…
Tom is the loving husband of June and, as one, they share their lives
together with their five children, Alisha, Kevin, Mary, Johnny and
Jacob! Tom is a financial planner at Adirondack Financial; if you
need to invest, stop in and see him he’s the best!
Ken is our resident farmer, and proud father of two children, Shalyn and
Evan. He tends to the rest of our farmland, spending much of his
“spare” time making hay and doing custom fieldwork for other farmers.
You have some animals that need some quality feed? Ken can hook you up!
Jerry and his wife Kimberly, are the proud parents of their baby girl Anna Grace, Amber (the
dog) Otis, Emma and Zoey (Cats). Jerry works at Verizon, and no he can’t
help you with your phone bill!
So please stop by our farm to say hello. We guarantee you’ll want
to keep coming back time and again to “get lost” in our maze, enjoy the
family atmosphere and build some traditions of your own. We look
forward to meeting you!
