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.
Tour hours are from 9:00 a.m.— 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and and Noon-6:00 pm Sunday of Farm Tour weekend. Farmers offer their farms as tour stops. They will have guided tours of their individual farms and will be available to talk to you about their farm practices. You are responsible for transportation between farms. Many will have educational displays and most will have farm products for sale.
We want you to come see the diversity of agriculture in our region. We have everything from alpacas to zucchinis—check out the farms list for more information.
Hope to see you on the tour!
