Fall is here and one of the most beautiful (and delicious!) destinations for Fall is just a short drive away – Altamont, NY! 

In just a 20 minute drive from Downtown Schenectady, you can find yourself surrounded by natural beauty, farm-fresh produce and delicious craft beverages. Here are a few spots to check out during your visit:

Altamont Orchards 

This gorgeous orchard dates all the way back to 1792 when the original deed is dated. Ownership has changed through the years, but this beautiful farm still boasts delicious Pick Your Own apple crops and a Farm Market stocked with apples, apple cider and cider donuts as well as flowers and other goods. 

Indian Ladder Farms 

This popular orchard and agritourism destination is host to a ton of fall (and year-round!) fun! Enjoy educational programs, pick your own apples and pumpkins and then stop by their tasting room offering beer and hard cider made with ingredients grown right on the farm. 

Altamont Vineyard and Winery 

Born out of our love of fine wines, food and farming, The Altamont Vineyard & Winery has become the premier location for hand-crafted wine in Altamont, NY. This beautiful winery features a tasting room and seasonal vineyard tours by reservation.
