On Saturday, November 5, more than 15 Ventura County farms, ranches and agricultural organizations will invite the public to experience a day of free agricultural activities and tours during the 10th Annual Ventura County Farm Day. This year’s theme is “Meet All The Hands That Feed You.” Visitors can map out their day by viewing the Farm Day Trail Map at https://venturacountyfarmday.com/farm-tours.
Each site offers tours and produce and other giveaways. Farm Day enables the public to meet the local farmers who grow the food we eat. Tour hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Some require reservations.
Participating in Farm Day include Reiter Affiliated Companies (berries), Driscoll’s (strawberries), Duda Farm Fresh Foods (row crops), Earthtrine Fam (organic vegetables), Alpacas At Windy Hills (Alpaca fleece), Blue Ridge Honey (raw honey), Good Farms Making a Difference (strawberries), Oxnard Historic Farm Park (antique farm equipment, vegetable crops and talks about the agricultural heritage of the Oxnard Plains), Agromin (organic compost and mulch) and Petty Ranch (also the Farm Day hub with additional activities and displays).
Ventura County Farm Day is organized by the nonprofit Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEEAG). SEEAG’s mission is to educate students and the greater community about the farm origins of our food and agriculture’s contribution to our nutritional well-being.
