The Farm Crawl is an excellent opportunity for families and friends to meet farmers, see demos, and take tours of local farms in Southern Illinois. Every year the Co-op works with local farmers to create this unique event that is fun and educational for all ages. Farmers will share the history of their farms, talk about crops, livestock, and the unique ups and downs in farming. This kind of interaction gives tremendous insight into the region’s agriculture and the food supply in our area. You don’t need to be a farmer to enjoy this crawl! So come on out, see the sights and learn about the diverse landscape of farming that Southern Illinois has to offer!!
This year we are doing things a bit differently! We are focusing Saturday’s farms in the Northwest region of southern Illinois and Sunday’s farms will be more centralized in our region around the Carbondale area. Stay tuned for more details!
Car passes available for purchase starting late Aug. This event is a self-guided tour. Your pass will give access to farms on the crawl for the region.
