The Abbott family history can be traced back to the mid-1700s in England, where Asa Abbott was a soldier during the Revolutionary War. Generations after he traveled to Albany, Clay, and finally settled on a farm on Cold Springs Rd in Baldwinsville, NY where they currently operate the Abbotts currently operate their farm.
Today, Warren Abbott, CEO, CFO, and all-around techhead, leads the farm with his wife, Alice. He graduated from Purdue University in 1987 with a BS in Agricultural Economics burning a hole in his pocket. He always said he went to school for three people (himself, his dad and mom) because they all valued continuing education and new ventures. Warren and Alice’s vision was for a profitable grain crop farm joined with a fall U-picking operation that would engage the residential population in Greater Baldwinsville. Over time, his vision for the farm has evolved into a full-season U-pick and entertainment destination for Central New Yorkers.
