Our farmers are excited to share their farming knowledge and the day to day operation and challenges of farming.  There will be many animals to see, farm-related activities, commodity displays, local produce to purchase. You will end your day with an appreciation for local farming and the commitment of the farm families. Admission is a non-perishable food donation or cash for the Local Food Bank.
