This year we will be visiting operations that range from a few acres of intense vegetable production to a historic 3,000-acre cattle ranch. While different in size, the stops on the Ag Tour share an important commonality – a commitment to producing high quality agricultural products for our community. Reservations Ag Tour Flyer
Our scheduled stops this year include:
Larkspur Lavender Farm – With more than 13 varieties of lavender, this farm promises to be a visual and olfactory feast! From fresh field cut bouquets to a range of body products, Larkspur Lavender Farm uses sustainable farming practices to produce a premium crop.
Starbright Acres Family Farm – Growers of nutritious, delicious, planet-friendly food for the community and their family, Starbright Acres Family Farm has received widespread recognition as an ecologically and financially sustainable, small-scale farming operation.
The Kramer Farm – Featuring one of the best examples of a historic barn in Nevada County, the Kramer Farm stop will include a very special herding demonstration featuring their working dogs and a presentation on grazing and irrigation practices.
Robinson Ranch – In the Robinson Family since the 1800s, this cattle and haying operation is now under the 7th generation of family ownership and management. Covering several thousand acres, this pioneer ranch is one of Nevada County’s most important and productive working landscapes.
Pilot Peak Winery – Producer of award-winning wines, the Pilot Peak ethos is that good wine is best enjoyed when surrounded by family and friends. A visit to Pilot Peak is described as warm, friendly, and memorable – a perfect way to end the 2019 Ag Tour!
