McHenry County Farm Stroll

Come out for a day in the country! On Sept. 24, McHenry County will host its third annual Farm Stroll, a self-guided tour of the county's diversified family farms. A total of 12 farms will be part of this educational agriculture-centric tour. Apple orchards, vegetable growers, dairy cows, beef cattle, pigs, sheep, goats, chickens, turkeys, horses, alpacas, honey bees, perennial plants, hydroponics and more will be featured within these 12 farms. Because this is a family-friendly, free, self-guided tour, there is no beginning or end of the tour—just choose the farms that interest you and visit during the designated time. The Farm Stroll is organized by the McHenry County Farm Bureau and the University of Illinois Extension McHenry County Master Gardeners. Extension Master Gardener and 4-H volunteers will be onsite to assist farm families in accommodating guests and conducting demonstrations and tours. There is no charge for the Farm Stroll and Market, but most farms will be selling food, produce or other farm-related products. Bring cash to purchase items directly from the farmers. Remember, these are working farms: dress appropriately and supervise children at all times. No pets, please. A few farms will have toilet facilities, but several do not.
