McHenry County will host its fifth annual Farm Stroll, a self-guided tour of the county’s diversified family farms, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 29. A total of 12 farms will be part of this educational, agriculture-centric tour. Fruit and vegetable growers, dairy cows, beef cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, horses, honeybees, perennial plants and more will be featured on the tour.

This family-friendly, free, self-guided tour has no beginning or end – just choose the farms of interest, and visit during the designated time.

The Farm Stroll is organized by the McHenry County Farm Bureau and the University of Illinois Extension McHenry County Master Gardeners. Extension Master Gardener and 4-H volunteers will be on-site to assist farm families in accommodating guests and conducting demonstrations and tours.

Most farms will be selling food, produce or other farm-related products. Bring cash to buy items directly.
