  • The original, the biggest, the best!  Eight independent family farm operations,
    all within an easy drive of each other in south-central Iowa,
    are jointly hosting open houses.  Enjoy a leisurely autumn day “crawling” from farm to farm
    (Okay, you don't actually crawl, you drive yourself between farms).  

    Come visit south Marion County/north Lucas County (one hour south of Des Moines)
    to see each of our individual operations.  Tour the farms, visit the animals, meet the farmers,
    see demonstrations, sample the goodies, purchase locally grown & produced products,
    and have lots of fun in the beautiful Iowa countryside!  Visit special guest vendors at many of the farms. 
    FREE admission onto all of the farms
