ORANGE COUNTY,  N.Y. -- When's the last time you were a tourist in your own backyard?

Spend this back to school season teaching the kids about the importance of local farming -- and get in a lesson or two about the animals that live here.

Bellvale Farms, Warwick: Learn how cows are milked at this 200-year old family dairy; then enjoy the homemade ice cream at neighboring Bellvale Farms Creamery.

Hill-Hold Campbell Hall: This historic farm complete with a 1769 stone farmhouse, one- room schoolhouse, herb garden, and resident farm animals, often holds special events from now through Octobers. Check the website for details.

Lawrence Farms Orchards, Newburgh: Tis the season for apple-picking. Here, families can visit the miniature New England-style play village or hop aboard the apple train ride. The farm's Facebook page lets you know what's ripe and ready for picking!

Rock Ridge Alpaca Farm, Chester: How can you not fall in love with the gentle alpacas on this working farm? Here, your kids will learn about the "alpaca lifestyle." Born earlier this summer: Athena's first cria, a medium rose gray male.

Wright Family Farm, Warwick: Farm life is on full display here complete with pedal tractors, hay rides, corn maze, and pony rides. The farm officially opens Sept. 2 for the fall season.
