    Do you know where your food comes from? Do you wish you could get more of it from local farmers? Well, here’s a chance for the whole family to connect with the farmers producing local foods in DeKalb County. University of Illinois Extension is once again hosting the DeKalb County Farm Stroll on Sunday, July 24th, 2016 from noon to 5:00pm. About a dozen diversified family farms will be opening their farm gates to the public for tours, activities, sampling, and sales.

    The farms participating in the Farm Stroll raise vegetables, bedding plants, bees, lamb, cattle, shrimp, wine grapes, sweet corn, pumpkins, berries, and row crops, too! Just choose which farms you want to see and create your own route using the map and brochure provided. The Stroll is free, but bring some cash for prepared foods, farm-fresh products, and special events. Also, don’t forget to turn in a completed Farm Stroll Passport at the end of your adventure to be entered in a drawing for local food prizes.

    I'm excited and honored to be part of this program. Hey, that's my grubby hand on the brochure! I hope you come out and enjoy your time in DeKalb County. Other related information can be found here:
