Venture out to the Miami County Farm Tour to see a slice of farm life and explore an organic lavender farm and a regenerative farmstead. Play with goats and meet alpacas, cows, chickens, sheep, bison and pigs on this free, self-guided, tour in eastern Kansas.
Fourteen farms will be open to visitors from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, May 8 and Sunday, May 9. Information about the tour and a map of the sites is available at the Miami County Farm Tour.
This self-guided tour highlights the local farm products found on the back roads of Miami County. Three new stops have been added this year:
- Five Mile Farms uses regenerative farming practices that are more environmentally friendly for the soil and the climate. Visitors will learn about regenerative soil practices on this cattle and poultry farm.
- Madd House Hill Farm invites visitors to play with the Nigerian dwarf dairy goats that provide milk for lotions, soap and other goods.
- Sweet Streams Lavender Company grows organic lavender to create lavender products like soap, lotion, candles, bath salts and even a lavender brownie mix.
The farm tour offers activities for the whole family. Most stops will have picnic and rest area amenities. Several farms will offer products for sale, including cheese, pecans, fresh vegetables, wine, blackberries and lavender products. Visitors can also participate in a new digital scavenger hunt at each farm for a chance to win farm door prizes. Find more information at Miami County Farm Tour.
Each stop will follow local COVID-19 health protocols and will have cleaning supplies available.
