Soil Sisters

The three-day SOIL SISTERS event offers immersive farming and culinary experiences, led by women, the "soil sisters." From heirloom tomatoes to pickles, sheep to solar energy, farmstay bed & breakfasts to beef, the farmers and artisan food producers share a unique diversity of farm experiences showcasing the summer's bounty. Choose from a variety of farm-to-table culinary events, on-farm "Green Acres" workshops or go on their Tour of Farms. Depending on the workshop, you can spin some fiber, go on a hayride, learn how to ferment, or paint your own barn board art, among many other hands-on activities. Wear your sun hat, pull on your farm boots or overalls, and kick back for a relaxing time on one, or all, of the farms. And come hungry for some farm-to-table feasts.
