AG + Art tour set to be a weekend of farm fun, June 15-16

FAIRFIELD COUNTY – The county will once again be showing off its fair fields and farms during the fifth annual Fairfield County Ag + Art Tour. The farm sites on the tour will feature their home-grown produce as well as local artisans and musicians.

“The tour is an introduction to some of the beautiful farms and products that Fairfield has to offer,” Chamber of Commerce Gene Stephens said.

Eleven farms throughout the county will be open for touring on Saturday, June 15, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday, June 16, from 1 – 5 p.m. The tours are free.

Visitors can begin their self-guided tour at any of the farms. The day is meant to be leisurely and enjoyable, so It will probably not be possible to see all the farms in one day.

Bring a cooler with an ice pack and pick up some fresh veggies, let the kids enjoy a hay-ride and barnyard animals, watch artists at work, and enjoy a day in the country! Food, drinks and treats will be available for purchase at many of the farms.

At the first site, visitors can register and pick up a tour booklet that will serve as a guide to the various farms and their offerings.
