Educate consumers through Open Farm Days

Registration for Open Farm Days 2016 is now open. Last year’s event had more than 70 participating farms; 18 farm-to-table culinary events; 10,000 visits to farms; and almost $100,000 in food and on-farm sales.

The event, which runs from Aug. 20-21 this year, provides an opportunity to support local food producers, educate consumers about agriculture, and generate additional tourism in your area. Saturday is for farm-to-table culinary events, while Sunday is for farm open houses.
