Take some time to get to you your local farming community. Do you have any idea what happens on a farm? Have you always wanted to take a peek? Do you have tractor envy and want to satisfy a craving? There are all sorts of reasons to stop what you are doing ( stacking wood, searching for winter tires, canning dilly beans, reading the Farmer's Almanac for hints to this upcoming winter's temps) and take a drive a little bit north to discover the beauty and wonder of farming.
Below is the list of farms available for your viewing pleasure and a short note from the Cohase Chamber:
Please join us for our first area Farm Tour!
The Cohase region is abundantly peppered with small family farms, all of whom are happy to welcome you and show off their resources and products. From the freshest organic produce, to pasture-raised meats of many kinds, you’ll discover the wealth of food opportunities for you and your family as you check out the flocks, herds, and fields that sustain a way of life for many farming families here.
Visit one or visit all. Bring your children and enjoy your day!
