About the 12th Annual Kaw Valley Farm Tour
The Kaw Valley region offers a wealth of sights, tastes and traditions. The farm tour provides fun and interactive farm experiences, supports local farms and introduces individuals of all ages to the many faces of agriculture in the Kaw Valley.
Have breakfast on a farm, discover unique artisans, nurseries and greenhouses, pumpkin patches and wines produced at local vineyards. Pet a friendly alpaca, meet a horse that paints or chat with a chicken.
The Kaw Valley Farm Tour is the perfect event for friends and families, and a great way to make connections between the farmers in the fields and the foods on our tables.
How the Kaw Valley Farm Tour Works
Gather your friends, fill up a car, locate farms on the map and decide which route you want to take! Pick and choose whichever farms you want to visit. Tickets are $10 per car load and good for both days.

New This Year
Lamborn Farm (Leavenworth) will host Operation Wildlife demonstrations Sunday, October 2.
As Kansas’ largest funded wildlife clinic, Operation Wildlife, Inc. receives thousands of wild animals each year with release rates averaging 69%, 20% higher than the national average.
For nearly 30 years, OWL has provided rehabilitation and veterinary services to injured and orphaned wild animals. Once emergency needs are met, individualized programs for total recovery are implemented with the goal of returning the animals to their natural habitat.
With services covering nine counties, OWL receives no state or federal funding and relies entirely on the generosity of wildlife-loving donors. They appreciate your help. For more information, visit www.Owl-Online.org.
