Clallam County Farm Tour celebrates area’s agricultural heritage

The 20th annual tour featured food, friendly farm animals and local farmers.

SEQUIM — Seven farms across the Sequim-Dungeness Valley celebrated the harvest season Saturday at the 20th Clallam County Farm Tour, a self-guided tour that celebrates the agricultural heritage of the region.

The tour gives the community an opportunity each year to connect with local farmland, listen to live music, eat farm-fresh food and engage with area farmers.

The North Olympic Land Trust and WSU Clallam County Extension co-sponsor the event, which had more than 2,000 individuals visit last year.
