McHenry County Farm Stroll




McHenry County will host its third annual Farm Stroll, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., September 24—a self-guided tour of the county’s diversified family farms. A total of 12 farms will be part of this educational ag-centric tour. Apple orchards, vegetable growers, dairy cows, beef cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, horses, alpacas, honeybees, perennial plants, hydroponics and more will be featured. There is no beginning or end of the tour, just choose which farms are of the most interest.

         These are working farms, so visitors are advised to dress appropriately and supervise children at all times. No pets, please. A few farms will have toilet facilities, but several do not.

Admission is free. For more information, call 815-338-1520 or visit web.extension.illinois.edu/lm.
