What to expect?
- You are encouraged to participate by introducing yourself, asking questions, and sharing your experiences.
- Come prepared to take lots of pictures, and notes. Tours are not workshops, and do not usually include handouts or other take home materials.
- Expect that you will be outside for the duration of tour. Wear appropriate clothing, sunscreen, hats, and water etc.
- Expect to be on your feet, and walking around for most of the tour.
- No food or drink will be provided. There will be a bathroom, usually in the host’s home.
- Check and double-check your directions. Rural addresses can be trickier to find than urban ones.
- Every farm tour, like every farm is unique. Every tour group is at a different level. Ask for clarification if you need it!
- A family rate is for up to two adults and two children under 13 years of age.
