MCHENRY COUNTY FARM STROLL (9/26/2021)
Come out for a day in the country! On Sept. 26, 2021, McHenry County will host its seventh annual Farm Stroll, a self-guided tour of the county’s diversified family farms. A total of 12 farms will be part of this educational agriculture-centric tour. Fruit and vegetable growers, dairy cows, beef cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, horses, honey bees, perennial plants and more will be featured within these 12 farms.
Because this is a family-friendly, free, self-guided tour, there is no beginning or end of the tour—attendees can just choose the farms that interest them and visit during the designated time.
The Farm Stroll is organized by the McHenry County Farm Bureau and the University of Illinois Extension McHenry County Master Gardeners. Extension Master Gardener and 4-H volunteers will be onsite to assist farm families in accommodating guests and conducting demonstrations and tours.
There is no charge for the Farm Stroll, but most farms will be selling food, produce or other farm-related products.
