Spring Farm Tour
Friday, May 17th

Hop aboard a chartered bus and join us for a daylong excursion
through the scenic Skagit Valley!

You’ll get a behind-the-scenes tour of the operations of local farms
and learn about the infrastructure and economics necessary for a viable agricultural industry in Skagit County. 

Continental breakfast, lunch, and snacks are included.

This year’s tour is focused on east Skagit County.

Itinerary is subject to change.

Depart from South Skagit Park & Ride in Sedro-Woolley at 8:30 a.m.

Stop #1 │ Sauk Farm in Concrete
Sauk Farm is an organic family farm located in eastern Skagit County at the base of Sauk Mountain, at the confluence of the Sauk and Skagit Rivers.  Periodic floods have covered the area in rich river delta packed with microfauna and nutrients creating soil that is prime for their organic fruit crops.  Sauk Farm is committed to producing organic crops in a sustainable manner that has the least impact on the surrounding environment.

Stop #2 │ Carstens Ranch in Concrete
Carstens Ranch is a farm near Birdsview that raises free-range organic Angus cattle.

Stop #3 & Lunch │ Eagle Haven Winery in Sedro-Woolley
Established in 2004 by Jim Perkins, Eagle Haven Winery started out as a neighborhood winery and community center and has grown into the leading fruit wine maker in the Skagit Valley.  Eagle Haven’s fruit wines are made “on the fruit” rather than with concentrates so you get the purest taste of what our agricultural community has to offer.  The farm contains both an orchard and a vineyard as well as a tasting room.

Lunch for this tour will be catered by Kelly’s BBQ and will be hosted in the outdoor covered pavilion at Eagle Haven Winery.

Stop #4 │ Hoehn Bend Farm in Sedro-Woolley
Hoehn Bend Farm is a 30-acre farm where Terry and Jean Sapp raise grass-fed Dexter Cattle, the Irish heritage breed that is the naturally smallest breed of cattle. Hoehn Bend Farm and nearby Fender Farm produce hay for winter feed.  In addition to the cattle, the farm is home to a variety of animals including Kinder goats, miniature donkeys, chickens, Polly the pig, Ebony the cat, Maggie the tri-color Rough Collie, and Sadie the Australian Shepherd. Hoehn Bend Farm also hosts a Farm Stay, where visitors are able to have first-hand experience of life on a farm.

Stop #5 │ Foothills Farm in Sedro-Woolley
Foothills Farm is dedicated to growing a variety of organic, sustainable food.  They take their products to market on Saturdays, so you’ll likely be able to see them preparing for this on our Friday tour.

Return to South Skagit Park & Ride in Sedro-Woolley at approximately 3:30 p.m.

Please note: Our farm tours often include standing for extended periods of time and walking on rough or uneven terrain.  Inclement weather is possible. 

This tour is open to those age 21 and older.
