As the weather cools and plants perk up, join us for a day of fun activities for the whole family! View farm animals and equipment, and talk with agricultural scientists about new crops, methods and equipment for modern farming. Take a stroll through the new botanical garden or hop on a tractor-trolley for a tour highlighting fruits and nuts for our area. Speak with experts about all your gardening questions, or purchase unusual, hard-to-find, top-performing plants for your garden. Children’s arts and crafts activities will take place in a huge “Kid Zone” located in a shaded area of the garden area. Local arts and crafts will be for sale, and food and beverages will be available.
