Farm Tour Day 2015- June 20
9 a.m.- 3p.m.
Enjoy a day in the country and get a behind-the-scenes look at how your food and flowers are grown on the Sixth Annual Farm Tour Day in San Diego County. This is an exclusive look at a side of San Diego County few people get to see. We take one day each year to allow the public an opportunity to experience farming life! We have three excellent tours this year in:
Oceanside Valley Center Encinitas
All three tours will include four farms and a great sample of San Diego agriculture. We will have fruit, vegetables, nursery crops, vineyards and more on every tour. The Encinitas tour has a brand new line-up of farms that haven’t been showcased on Farm Tour Day in the past. Valley Center has a winery from 2012 and Oceanside has an organic farm from 2014 that have been favorites in the past!
Guided walking tours, led by the farmers themselves, will take you through their unique farming operations and showcase a variety of the region’s agricultural specialties. This educational exploration will delight all ages. 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Tour participants provide their own transportation and will receive detailed maps and driving directions. Each tour is focused in a local farming community, with four diverse farm stops. We recommend packing a picnic lunch for your group to take advantage of picturesque eating areas on every tour. All tours will showcase the diversity of San Diego agriculture and take place in the city listed and surrounding areas. Actual farm locations, descriptions and and directions will be sent to participants the week of the event.
Farm Tour Day is an outdoor guided walking tour event. Tour stops are active farming operations where ground is uneven, unpaved, sloped, and may include stairs. Tour participants are urged to wear sturdy, close-toed shoes, sunscreen and hats. Strollers are not recommended. If you have accessibility concerns, please contact Farm Bureau before the event.
