Ryan & Ryan Insurance Brokers Client of the Month for December

Hurds Family Farm

If you’re looking for some ‘agritainment’, look no further than Hurds Family Farm. What is ‘agritainment’, you might wonder? It’s the many agricultural outdoor activities that farmers create for kids and their families to enjoy while spending time on a farm. Hurds Family Farm provides a vast array of traditional and unique agritainment activities each season including hayrides, corn mazes, a cow train, a bouncy pillow, petting and feeding animals, paddle boats, hiking, a picnic pavilion, a kids corral play area, and much, much more. Additional fun throughout the year has also included gem mining fossils and precious stones, picking your own salad garden by the bag, bonfires, and a skydiving visit from Santa!

At Hurds Family Farm, you can pick your own local fruits and vegetables in early spring, pick your own apples in September, enjoy pumpkin picking in October, and cut down your own Christmas tree in December. You can also enjoy already harvested local produce, precut Christmas trees, handmade wreaths and holiday decorations, if you prefer. Keep in mind that groups of all sizes are always welcome at Hurds Family Farm!
Located in Ulster County, about 1 hour and 30 minutes north of the “Big Apple”, Hurds Family Farm has become one of the most popular talk-about -able farm. Their 20 year commitment to providing an abundance of quality products and the best fall farm experience for all of their loyal customers from New York City and local Ulster, Dutchess, and Orange Counties, makes them a key part of the Hudson Valley Apple Trail. Be sure to visit​ to see all they have to offer.

Hurds Family Farm has been a client of producer, Jeff Smith, since 2000 and Ryan & Ryan Insurance Brokers since 2010.  Having taken over the business 6 years ago, Charles Hurd states he inherited Jeff Smith and his wide range of farm insurance knowledge.  According to Charles, "Jeff always gives a clear and simple explanation of coverages as they relate to the farm business and if he says the farm owners policy will cover something, it does!  Jeff takes the time to meet with me at any time and at any place on the farm.  He is flexible so I don't need to be, especially during the busiest times of the season."
