Bus Tour of Farms

Dates / Times:

 

Friday, August 6, 12:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Sunday, August 8, 12:30 pm - 5:30 pm

 

Location: Family farms around Green County.

 


Hop on the bus and enjoy a behind-the-scenes, personal tour of three Soil Sisters farms on each Bus Tour of Farms. The tour for each day will visit different farms. Celebrate local agriculture by visiting small family farms led by Wisconsin women committed to a healthy, fresh future for our communities.


For attendees of Soil Sisters in previous years, please note this will REPLACE the free tour day during Sunday. The Bus Tour of Farms will give the opportunity to have a more in-depth and personal farm experience.  Independent of this Bus Tour of Farms, please also note that many ticketed Soil Sisters workshops may include a tour of the farm as a part of the workshop experience.  These new Bus Tour of Farms will also reduce road congestion at the farms and lessen carbon emissions associated with numerous cars moving around the countryside.
