Welcome to the 9th Annual Whidbey Island Farm Tour!
Whidbey Island farmers are raising all kinds of crops and livestock, including over 200 varieties of fruits and veggies and dozens of types of animals for meat, eggs, dairy, fiber, and fun! Many farmers are also creating value-added products directly from what they raise. Taste locally made cheese, jam, or spirits. Learn about Community
Supported Agriculture. See how farms are raising grass-fed and free-range beef cows, goats, sheep, hogs, and fowl. Meet friendly alpacas, llamas, and horses. Many farms will be hosting other farmers, food purveyors, and entertainers, so there is bound to be something for everyone! Bring the kids and spend the day “down on the farm.” Or make a weekend of it and stay at a Bed & Breakfast and feast at any of the wonderful Whidbey restaurants featuring local farm foods.
The tour is FREE! You can start anywhere and take in as many or as few farms as you like. Please note that some farms are offering events at specific times, and a few are open one day only. Our 2014 map with information and directions will be done soon, so check back and make your plans to tour Whidbey farms!
Primary goals of the tour are to:
• Educate our community about our farms and the good stewardship practices used to protect our natural resources;
• Promote the benefits of locally grown food, fiber, and other products; and
• Assist our local farms in their sustainability, marketing, and publicity efforts.
