The Orange County Farmers’ Museum is a private, non-profit organization solely supported by donations, events and programs held on the grounds. The Orange County Farmers’ Museum is located within the historic Brick House Museum Park where we have 37.5 acres. In addition to our exhibits, the museum provides various educational activities for children and adults. The Orange County Farmers Museum has an extensive collection of farm implements from farms in Orange
County that date back to the 1700’s.
This collection is primarily contained at the Orange County Farmers Museum Montgomery, NY location, with an exhibit at our Annex location at Museum Village in Monroe, NY. The Orange County Farmers museum is proud to say that many of these older farm implements are in working condition, and offer insight to the history of agriculture in Orange County.
The Orange County Farmers Museum operates solely by volunteers who dedicate over 3500 hours each season to provide Orange County Communities and tourists the opportunity to view 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.
