Fifth Annual Santa Barbara County Farm Day, September 23

The fifth annual Santa Barbara County Farm Day is set for Saturday, September 23. It’s a once-a-year opportunity to experience how the food we eat is grown. The day includes behind-the-scenes tours, tractor with trailer rides, tastings, giveaways and kid-friendly activities. With the help of the online Farm Day Trail Map, the public can pick which farms to visit and then map out the day’s driving itinerary. Farms are located in Santa Maria, Santa Ynez Valley, Los Alamos and beyond.

Farm Day is free to attend. Tour hours are from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Attendees can tour farms that produce specialty crops, seasonal produce and berries, wine grapes and livestock. New Farm Day agricultural participants are being added. Check the Farm Day website and social media for the latest list of participants.

Santa Barbara County Farm Day is organized by the 501c3 nonprofit Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEEAG). SEEAG’s mission is to educate students and the greater community about the farm origins of our food and agriculture’s contribution to our nutritional well-being.
