In lieu of Farm Tour, Creamery to host Family Farm Day!
Clallam County Family Farm Day is a family friendly event that will take place at the Dungeness Valley Creamery on Saturday September 30th from 1-6 p.m. Suggested donation $5 per carload, but no one turned away.
“This is a consolidated version of the Clallam County Farm Tour at one location,” says Clea Rome, WSU Clallam County Director.
“There will be a farm marketplace, demos, games, hay rides, cheese making, and pony rides, as well as a 21+ bar to benefit local land conservation hosted by North Olympic Land Trust. We are very excited that Dungeness Valley Creamery is partnering with us to offer an alternative to the tour this year, which would have been challenging logistically with the old 101 bridge closure that cuts off the main road between many of the farms. We are happy we can continue this 20-year tradition, albeit in a modified form.”
Local farms and fiber artists such as Twisted Fibers, Two Bears Garden, Wild Edge Farm, Jardin du Soleil, and The Farm will set up an on-site farm marketplace with plenty of local produce and value added goods for sale. Families can play agrarian games (like hay tosses and egg tosses for kids) organized by 4H leaders, and enjoy pony rides, hay rides as well as a petting zoo. Dungeness Valley Creamery will be teaching a yogurt and cheese making class and the Land Trust will host educational walking tours throughout the day, focusing on the conservation of the creamery and the surrounding lands. Participants can enjoy live music by Buck Ellard Band as well as food by Pacific Pantry. A local tractor display will welcome families as they spend the afternoon on this working family farm.
