This year we loaded up the kids and made a few stops on the Festival of Family Farms Skagit Farm Tour.
It’s a great chance to get to connect with your local food system, build relationships with your farmers and spend some quality time with your family!
I feel so lucky to live in an area not only rich with natural beauty but also with an abundant and thriving community of farmers with farm stores at the source.
Once a year many of these farmers get together and host a farm tour where families can follow a map through all the participating farms. A Festival of Family Farms.
Along the way you can taste their offerings and partake in the extra activities at each stop! tasting their offerings and partaking in the extra activities each offers.
The adults tasted all sorts of local cheeses, seafood and locally grown goods and brought our favorites to the beach to end the day with a local farm goods picnic.
The kids had fun climbing on farm equipment,
Getting their faces painted.
And building fairy houses on the beach.
