Numerous farms in the Port Angeles and Sequim area were open to the public on Saturday, Sept. 28 to celebrate the North Olympic Peninsula’s agricultural heritage for the 23rd annual Clallam Farm Tour.

Clea Rome, director of Washington State University extension office, said the farm tour “turned out to be a beautiful day and the farms were hopping.” It was the first year in many years the event was free, she said.

Farm Week activities continue through Oct. 5 with local retailers offering deals and tours like Nash’s Farm Store, Martha Lane Lavender and Jardin du Soleil in Sequim/Dungeness.

Rome also speaks at 7 p.m. in the Port Angeles Library on Thursday, Oct. 3 about Clallam County’s agriculture.

The Port Angeles Farmers Market and Sequim Farmers Market host various events and special guests on Saturday including Master Gardeners in Sequim.

Next year’s farm tour tentatively runs the same time in 2020. For more information, visit http://extension.wsu.edu/clallam.
