Visit a variety of many local small farms on the SnoValley Tilth Farm Tour, Sept. 22, from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Pet some alpacas or miniature donkeys, learn about produce storage techniques, view the role of native plants and animals in agriculture and see sustainable farming in action!
Participating farms include Baxter Barn, Jubilee, Dancing Crow, Dog Mountain and Alpacas at Legacy Ranch, all in Carnation/Fall City area.
