Local food and fun on the DeKalb County farm stroll

Have you ever wondered how local orchards produce such delicious apples, how shepherd dogs round up sheep, or where all those beautiful vegetables at the farmers market are actually grown?

We have a free, family-friendly event to satisfy your local food cravings and curiosities.

From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, the University of Illinois Extension will host the DeKalb County Farm Stroll, a self-guided driving tour of a dozen highly diversified family farms, all open to the public on one big day.

There will be farm tours, demonstrations, and of course fresh local food sampling and sales.

The farms participating in the Farm Stroll raise vegetables, bedding plants, apples, bees, lamb, wine grapes, sweet corn, pumpkins, trees, berries, and more.

Just choose which farms you want to see and create your own route using the map and brochure provided. The stroll is free, but bring some cash for prepared foods or to stock up on local, farm-fresh products.

Follow DeKalb County Farm Stroll on Facebook for up-to-the-minute information, maps, and spotlight features on each farm: www.facebook.com/dekalbcofarmstroll. Or contact University of Illinois Extension at 815-732-2191 or 815-758-8194 with questions.
