Eight independent family farms, in a small pocket of south central Iowa, welcome you to tour their farms on one big day this autumn. The eight farms include: Blue Gate Farm, Coyote Run Farm, Dan-D Farms, Pierce’s Pumpkin Patch, Reichert’s Dairy Air, Schneider Orchards, White Breast Pottery and Weaving, and Crooked Gap Farm. Meet these farmers, see their operations, visit the animals, sample the goodies, learn something new about agriculture and enjoy delicious food as you drive yourself from farm to farm through the beautiful Iowa countryside, and have fun with your family and friends!
