Summer Fun Farm Tour One
3 Days, 9 Farms, and 3 Hot Topics

Kansas Farmers Union, Farmer Veteran Coalition of Kansas, Kansas Beginning Farmers Coalition, Kansas Center for Sustainable Agriculture and Alternative Crops, and Kansas AgrAbility are partnering to present the Summer Fun Farm Tour Series.

These events are a great opportunity to visit other farms-many operated by beginning farmers and military veterans! Participating farms raise everything from fruits and veggies, to beef, sheep and poultry. Bees, too! A diversity of production types are represented. Farms sell their products across numerous marketing channels including direct sales at markets, wholesale to stores and restaurants, and online. Ask questions; get inspired!

You'll have the chance to explore the history of agriculture with Dawn Gabel, executive director of the National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame, and learn about opportunities with Farm Fresh HQ, a food hub recently launched in NE Kansas.

We're also digging into three of the most requested beginning farmer hot topics-farm food safety, grant writing, and business planning-during short, intensive afternoon workshops.

The series is made possible through funding from Farm Aid. The local foods lunch is generously sponsored by Frontier Farm Credit.
