Critz Farms is a family owned business

Critz 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. 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, 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.

We hope you enjoy visiting our web site, and we invite you to come out to the Farm and experience some of the many fun and exciting things we have to offer.
