We started with one barn, a small workshop, a tiny visitor’s center and a chicken house. Now, we’ve added two barns, a blacksmith shop, enlarged workshop, sawmill, run-in shed, barnyard, and a memorial building to house our collection. We just completed the Farmers Memorial Education Center with heated restroom facilities.
The museum operates solely by volunteers who dedicate over 3500 hours each season to provide Orange County Communities and tourists the opportunity to view and learn about our extensive collection of farming implements and tools, have hands on demonstrations and attend events that are free to the public. We rely on donations, memberships, sponsorships and monies earned at our concession stand. Stop by any weekend from May 15 – October 1 and take a step back in time. We offer private tours by appointment only.
The Orange County Farmers Museum operates in the public trust as a museum of service and interpretation in connecting objects and ideas relevant to farming history. We believe that our agricultural equipment collections have the power to educate, inspire and transform individuals of all ages and the local community we serve.
