Ten farms will open their doors to the public on Saturday, Sept. 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. to share the bounty of local agriculture in Clark County.

Farms will offer a variety of fun-filled events such as animal petting, hayrides, self-guided tours and pictures with alpacas.

Purchase fresh produce, U-pick, cut flowers, and other farm products; see alpacas, draft horses, chickens, lambs and other livestock and tour farmland, vegetable fields and flower gardens.

Educational activities will be offered including a guided hike on foraging for local wild edible plants, and classes on growing dahlias, processing alpaca fiber, finger knitting, raising backyard chickens, pork, beef and more. What makes this event even better? It’s free.

One of the main purposes of this event is to provide an opportunity to shake hands with local farmers and learn where to shop for locally produced farm products.
