The 4th Annual Ventura County Farm Day will take place Saturday, November 5, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at farms throughout Ventura County. In keeping with the spirit of giving during the month of November, Farm Day gives the public an opportunity to say thanks to our farmers and agricultural workforce who make sure we have food on our table. Farm Day is a free self-guided tour in which over 20 participating Ventura County farms open their doors, enabling the public to learn about agriculture firsthand. Each farm will feature a number of family friendly activities including free produce, agricultural book signings and food and beverage samplings. Following the farm tours is a barbeque at the Ventura County Fairgrounds (San Miguel Building) in Ventura. The barbeque is from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and features live country music by Coldwater Canyon, farm fresh food prepared by Young Farmers & Rangers, locally produced craft beers and wines and kids activities. Barbeque tickets are $40 for adults and $15 for kids under 12. Ventura County Farm Day is organized by Students for Eco-Education and Agriculture (SEEAG). SEEAG’s mission is to help children understand the farm origins of their food through classroom agricultural education and free farm field trips. Over 10,000 elementary school students in Southern California have increased their understanding of the food journey by participating in SEEAG programs.
