9th Annual Ventura County Farm Day – Meet The Hands That Feed You

Free self-guided farm tours throughout Ventura County

Now in its ninth year, Ventura County Farm Day is back with free, in-person, open farm tours on Saturday, November 6. This year's theme is "Meet The Hands That Feed You." Visitors can use a new online Farm Day Trail Map to build a custom itinerary to travel between growers throughout Ventura County. The public will experience a day of agricultural activities, farm tours and produce and other giveaways, plus meet the local farmers who grow the food we eat. Tour hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Over 20 agricultural entities will participate including Reiter Affiliated Companies (berries), Alpacas At Windy Hills (Alpaca fleece), Blue Ridge Honey (raw honey), Good Farms Making a Difference (strawberries) and Oxnard Historic Farm Park (featuring antique farm equipment, vegetable crops and talks about the agricultural heritage of the Oxnard Plains). Ventura County Farm Day is organized by the nonprofit Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEEAG). SEEAG’s mission is to help children understand the farm origins of their food through classroom agricultural and nutrition education and free farm field trips.
