Tour Schedules and Driving Directions

There really is no need to print the tour directions, as we provide them to drivers at the Ale. We provide them here for late comers, or guests who need to meet up with us on tour. You may want to the print the directions to camp, of course.

Swimming/Ice Cream Supplement

After your last dance stand, you can stay and taste some wine/beer/liquor before returning to Peter’s farm, where snacks will be available starting around 6:00 PM. Alternatively, although there will be a wide variety of interesting homemade ice creams and sorbets for dessert at Saturday Dinner, we have provided directions to the Cayuga Lake Creamery (vegan and gluten-free options available!) in case you would like to make a quick side trip for ice cream at the end of touring. You could also go to Taughannock Falls State Park in Trumansburg ($8 per car park entrance fee until 5:30 pm) if you would like to go swimming in Cayuga Lake.
