Recommended Posts

Farmland Animal Park, located on Wynkoop Creek Road in the Town of Chemung, sustained heavy damages due to flooding from last week's rainfall, including the loss of several animals.

The 18 acre park which offers a chance for visitors to visit and feed farm animals as well as tractor rides and other activities, sits next to the Wynkoop Creek. When the creek overflowed early last Tuesday morning, the park's owners immediately responded and began rescuing animals in danger, including a litter of pigs. They weren't able to get to all the animals however, losing a half dozen goats and several chickens to the floodwaters. 

Park owner Dave Mazzarese says the park will rebuild and hopes that people will come, spend some money, and enable him to build the park up better than it was before. 

In the meantime, the park has put out the call for help cleaning up the debris left behind from the flooding. A clean up day is scheduled for September 29th starting at 9am. For more information about the clean up efforts go to https://www.facebook.com/events/1892270464187660/
