Farms is a family owned business that was established in 1985. Recognized by the New York State Department of
Economic Development as recipients of the New York State Agritourism
Business of the Year Award, the farm operation centers on diversified
agriculture with a family entertainment focus.
Critz Farms consists of approximately 325
acres of land, situated just 3 1/2 miles south of scenic Route
20, Cazenovia, New York, in Madison County. Most of the Critz
Farms lands are now permanently protected through the New York
State Farmland Protection Program so as to remain forever development
free and available for agricultural purposes. The Syracuse area
is less than 30 minutes from this beautiful Central New York
farm. Owners Matthew and Juanita Critz live on the farm and their
three adult children remain involved in the business during different
times of the year.
A wide variety of crops are grown at Critz Farms. The primary
crops are pumpkins, apples, and conifer trees. Tree varieties
include balsam fir, fraser fir, white pine, white, blue, and
Norway spruce; for use as Christmas trees as well as for landscaping
purposes. Other crops include gourds, decorative corn, blueberries,
and flowers. Farm products include farm fresh sweet apple cider,
award winning hand crafted hard cider, New York cheddar cheese,
pure maple syrup and other maple products,
as well as balsam fir wreaths.
We welcome visitors to Critz Farms throughout
the year, beginning in March for our Maple
Syrup Celebration. In the summer we are open for pick-your-own
berries. The fall brings our annual Fall
Harvest Celebration, and from Thanksgiving to Christmas,
we are open for Holiday Family Fun.
The Harvest Moon Cidery farm winery tasting room welcomes visitors
from March through December. Visit the Farm
Winery website for details.
