Shelby Co. Good Neighbors Farm Tour

The Shelby County Good Neighbors Farm Tour is September 19, 2015. From 9 am to 4 pm your family can enjoy 10 farms in Shelby County for FREE! This is a great opportunity for families to get up close with farm animals, farm equipment, watch special demonstrations, and meet the wonderful farmers! There's something for everyone on this farm tour!

On the day of the tour pick up your Farm Passport at one of the following three locations: Shelby County Farmer's Market, Harvest Coffee & Cafe, or Metzger's County Store.

Visit as many farms as you like, for as long as you like! Before you leave each location, have your Farm Passport stamped. Leave your passport at your last location to be entered to win a basket filled with Shelby County and Kentucky Proud products (one entry for each stamp on your passport). I believe they have a children's prize this year as well :)
