This exciting agritourism event attracts hundreds each year—friends and families experiencing where their food comes from. Group tours are wel-come! For returning visitors, experience the farms you weren’t able to get to last year, or return to a family favorite. For new visitors, it’s a clean slate. When you visit at least three farms and turn in a completed survey, you will receive an insulated Family Farm Day tote bag at no cost. Plan your trip in advance or virtually while on the road. Navigate the farms with the Farm Guide, which will be accessible on our website. Printed guides will be available at farmers’ markets in the weeks prior to the event. Following your tour, take the time to enjoy restaurants, distilleries, wineries, and breweries that source local farm products. Go one step forward and stay the weekend at a historic bed & breakfast, local lodging, or Airbnb.
