Whidbey Island Farm Tour begins this weekend

The Whidbey Island Farm Tour is 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21 and Sunday, Sept. 22.

The self-guided tour gives participants a glimpse into working farms across Whidbey Island.

Farmers raise a wide variety of crops and livestock, including more than 200 types of fruits and veggies and a diversity of animals for meat, eggs, dairy, fiber and more.

Many are also creating additional products directly from what they cultivate.

On the farm tour, participants can taste locally made cheese, jam and even spirits. They also learn about Community Supported Agriculture and how to get locally produced, fresh food weekly during the growing season.

Many farms will be hosting other farmers, food purveyors and entertainers.

The farm tour has 14 stops all over the island, from Oak Harbor to Clinton.
