Clallam County Farm Tour is Oct. 5


Join us on the 17th Annual Clallam County Farm Tour from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Oct. 5.

 

Our tour showcases an amazingly diverse array of farms, including an organic lavender farm, a diversified organic vegetable farm, a cattle farm and riding school, a tree farm and organic orchard, a historical centennial farm and a raw milk dairy.


This year’s theme is “Clallam Agriculture: Then and Now” with each stop on the tour featuring displays, demonstrations and activities about what farming was like in the past century-and-a-half and what it looks like now. There will be fun for adults and children alike: great food, live music and lots of great family activities. This year the Farm Tour is teaming up with the North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival and the Museum & Arts Center in the Sequim-Dungeness Valley to feature exhibits in downtown Sequim at the festival headquarters.

Visit our website, clallam.wsu.edu, for a list of participating farms and activities, and a printable farm tour map. The tour is sponsored by WSU Clallam County Extension and the North Olympic Land Trust.

Come spend the day in beautiful Clallam County!
