The Whidbey Farm Tour is taking a break in 2016.
After 10 amazing years, the event is on hold while we work on a new strategy moving into the next decade.
In response to the diversity of farm characteristics within the local agricultural community and the dynamic and exciting changes that are taking place, the Farm Tour Committee has concluded that now is a great time to take a hiatus from the current format of the tour and initiate discussions among farmers to identify the best ways to move forward into the future to support the continued growth of the farm community. We are also seeking to engage our Farm Tour partners and sponsors in this process as we look forward to identifying roles all interested parties can take to make the best and most efficient use of each entity's skills.
