Shear excitement? You bet.
The seventh Clallam County Farm Tour, hosted by more than a half-dozen local farms, wowed crowds on Oct. 5, giving participants an array of farms from organic lavender and vegetable farms, to cattle and dairy farms, a tree farm and organic orchard and a historic centennial farm.
This year’s theme was “Clallam Agriculture: Then and Now,” with each stop on the tour featuring displays, demonstrations and activities about what farming was like through the past century-and-a-half and what it looks like now. The tour was sponsored by WSU Clallam County Extension and the North Olympic Land Trust.
Participating farms included: Annie’s Flower Farm, Bekkevar Family Farm, Dungeness Valley Creamery, Freedom Farm, Jardin du Soleil Lavender Farm, Lazy J Tree Farm, Lokalie Gaare farm, Nash’s Organic Produce and the Farm Tour Hub at the North Olympic Fiber Arts Festival on West Cedar Street.
