Farm Tour continues to grow

Organizers call the 19th annual Clallam County Farm Tour a success

Farms participating in this year’s 19th annual Clallam County Farm Tour were bustling with visitors on Oct. 3. The sun-filled Saturday gave way for a successful event with 2,000 people exploring one or more of the seven stops along the tour.

“It was a huge success,” Tom Sanford, North Olympic Land Trust executive director, said. “This was our largest tour ever.”

The annual event, co-sponsored by the Washington State University Clallam County Extension and the North Olympic Land Trust, is intended to highlight the diversity and value of local farms and connect the community with both the area’s farmers and agricultural heritage.
