Just outside of Penn Yan sits the beautiful rolling hills of Lavender Crest, where guests are invited to inhale, explore and enjoy. The farm uses ecotherapy methods including horticultural therapy, where gardens and landscapes are used to improve overall well-being and animal-assisted therapy.
When autumn arrives, Mud Creek Bison Ranch opens up to the public. Mud Creek Bison Ranch is an all organic “animal first” farm located in Savona, New York. They are devoted to raising and providing the best, stress-free home for their herd. With a bountiful landscape, Mud Creek Bison Ranch makes for an ideal home for the bison where they can roam free.
