WEEKEND: Smaller Clallam County farm tour this year allows families time to visit all sites

SEQUIM — The Harvest Celebration Farm Tours will take place at six eastern Clallam County farms on Saturday.

The 14th annual event runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“We only have six farms on the tour, but we will be putting out all that we can,” said Patty McManus-Huber with Nash’s Organic Produce.

The lower number is good for families, McManus-­Huber said, because it allows families to visit all the farms.

Nash’s, owned by Nash Huber and his wife, Patty, at 1865 E. Anderson Road, and Lazy J Tree Farm, owned by Steve Johnson at 225 Gehrke Road in Agnew, have been on the tour since it began.

Other participating farms are Dungeness Valley Creamery, 1915 Towne Road in Dungeness; Freedom Farm, 493 Spring Road in Agnew; Johnston Farms, 1046 Heuhslein Road in Agnew; and Trade Winds Alpacas, 1315 Finn Hall Road in Agnew.

Community potluck

The day ends with a 6 p.m. community potluck at Nash’s.

Food grown on the farm will be served, and country rock band Deadwood Revival will perform.

Admission to the self-guided farm tour is $10 per carload.

Tickets can be purchased at any of the participating farms on Saturday.

Each farm on the tour will offer different activities including educational displays, petting zoos, live music, tractor rides, arts and craft activities, contests and demonstrations.

Proceeds from the Harvest Celebration Farm Tours go to support the work of Friends of the Fields, now a division of the North Olympic Land Trust, in its efforts to preserve local farmland and support sustainable local farming.
