Farms in Northeast Kansas open to the public.  Always the first full weekend in October.  Gather up your friends, fill up a car, locate farms on the map and decide which route you want to take! Pick and choose whichever farms you want to visit! Tickets are $10 per carload and good for both days. 


Tour hours are from 10:00 a.m.— 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday of Farm Tour weekend. Farmers offer their farms as tour stops. They will have guided tours of their individual farms and will be available to talk to you about their farm practices. You are responsible for transportation between farms. Many will have educational displays and most will have farm products for sale.  We want you to come see the diversity of agriculture in our region. We have everything from alpacas to zucchinis -- check out the farms list for more information.
