The ninth annual Highland County Farm Tour, co-hosted by the Highland County Farm Bureau and the Highland Soil and Water Conservation District, will be held Sept. 16, at 10 a.m. in the New Petersburg area.

This year the tour will begin at Four Finger Hops, featuring presentations on the management of hops and a harvesting demonstration.

Crawford Knoll will be the second stop on the tour, featuring a newly constructed grass waterway and learn the history of the family farm.

The final stop will be Brenneman Farms, where you will learn how to extend the growing season by using seasonal high tunnel systems.

The goal of this collaborative outside event is to provide opportunities for the community to learn new advanced techniques and interact with others. Lunch will be provided during the Tour with pre-registration by Sept. 11.

Please visit or call the Highland SWCD office at (937) 393-1922 ext. 3 to register.
