Get to know your local farms and farm families on the fifth annual McHenry County Farm Stroll from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
Organized by the McHenry County Farm Bureau and the University of Illinois Extension McHenry County Master Gardeners, this free, self-guided tour brings attendees up-close and personal with this year’s participating locations, from Walworth, Wisconsin, to McHenry, Wonder Lake, Hebron, Woodstock and Marengo.
Twelve farms will be part of the tour, featuring fruit and vegetable growers, dairy cows, beef cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, horses, honey bees, perennial plants and more.
Many farms will be selling food, produce or other farm-related products so attendees are encouraged to bring cash to purchase directly from the farms.
