North Country Adventures

Redwood feels to many people like the middle of nowhere. In some respects this is true; but don't be deceived into thinking low population numbers match up with a low volume of excitement.

Whether it's a daytrip to Lake Ontario, dinner in Kingston, bar-hopping to Wegatchie and beyond, four-wheeler rides throughout the county, boat rides out to untouched wilderness, or exploratory missions to places we've never even heard of, the folks at Better Farm are nothing if not the embodiment of what it means to be true explorers.

Below are some shots of a few adventures from the last several months:

Bonfire party at Lowell's:

Skateboarding in LA (go Clayton!):

Halloween Eve blowout in Oneonta:

Sledding in the Tug Hill region:

A tour of some of the most notorious joints around (the Wegatchie at left, Redwood Tavern at right):

...but, there's no place like home.
