Bountiful Harvest Celebration

Bountiful Harvest Fundraiser

You don't want to miss out on the most FUN fundraiser in Orange County! Please join us for our Annual Bountiful Harvest Celebration at our Education Center & 4-H Park! 

Cornell Cooperative Extension Orange County's ninth annual Bountiful Harvest Celebration is set for Friday, September 20th from 5:00 to 9:00 P.M. The celebration will feature an evening of good old-fashioned fun at CCEOC’s Education Center and 4-H Park in Otisville. Festivities will include hay wagon rides, a sumptuous farm-to-table dinner from locally sourced favorites prepared by Country Courtesy Catering, and the highlight event – a celebrity cow milking contest. All proceeds from the event will support the continued development of the Education Center & 4-H Park located at 300 Finchville Turnpike in Otisville, N.Y. When completed, the site will be a regional state-of-the-art education, exhibition, and outreach facility geared toward human development opportunities and cutting-edge agricultural programs.

As part of the autumn evening celebration, local celebrity cow milkers representing Orange County’s retail industry will compete against one another in a friendly cow milking challenge. The celebrities will have two minutes to show off their talent in hand milking a cow. All three celebrities are also collecting donations for CCEOC in a friendly “wagering” of pledges that accompany the contest. 

Folks will have the opportunity to enjoy raffle baskets, old-fashioned games, calf feeding raffle contest, and a live auction! We are excited to announce that Derrik Wynkoop, President & CEO of Walden Savings Bank will be our auctioneer. All raffle baskets, game prizes, and live auction items have been donated by local friends and businesses of CCEOC in support of the development of the Education Center & 4-H Park.
