Activities for Kids

Join Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture on the 2014 High Country Farm Tour June 28 & 29. Don't miss this kid-friendly event that introduces families to different farms in the High Country region.

This year’s Farm Tour features 20 Farms in Ashe and Watauga Counties during the weekend of June 28th and 29th. Participating farms will hold an ‘open house’ from 2-6 PM and visitors can pick which farms they would like to tour during the course of the afternoon. Passes cost only $25 per car, so it's perfect for a 4-H Group or a van full of your family!

With so many farms there are opportunities for whole family! Greens growing in gutters, rotational grazing and bioshelters are only a few of the innovative approaches featured this year. Furthermore, there are plenty activities for kids including the Lil’ Locovore Learning Series and exciting alpacas, highland cattle, chickens, goats, and pigs to meet!
