SARATOGA SPRINGS — CCE Equine invites the public to experience one of Saratoga’s finest thoroughbred breeding farms with a free drive-through tour on Sunday, Sept. 6 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Mill Creek Farm.

Mill Creek Farm is opening its gates to allow the community to tour the farm from the safety of their car. This tour is a fun educational event enjoyed by all ages.

The equine industry is an essential part of Saratoga’s culture and economy. You can expect a delightful drive through a beautiful farm accompanied by an audio recording from Mill Creek’s owners, family, and staff. The audio recording will include farm history and what day-to-day life is like on the farm. You can find the recording and map on CCE Saratoga County’s website ccesaratoga.org in the weeks prior to this event which you can download or stream via a smart phone. A from-your-car scavenger hunt will also be available for kids to enjoy. 

This event will be a memorable family outing to conclude the track season. Mill Creek Farm is located on 1019 Co Rt 70, Stillwater, NY 12170. Those participating in the tour must enter north of the farm from the intersection of Neilson Rd and County Rd 70. Please note: you must stay in your car for the entire tour. Masks will be required to interact with staff and volunteers.
