The 5th Annual Highland County Farm Tour co-hosted by the Highland County Farm Bureau and the Highland Soil and Water Conservation District will be held on September 15, 2018. This year the tour will highlight farms in the New Petersburg area that will feature updated technology on managing your hay operation at the Karnes Farm, learn about an innovative high-tech swine facility from the Surber Family, and visit the Karnes Orchard with a newly constructed on-site market place.
The goal of this collorabitive event is to provide opportunities for the community to learn new advanced techniques and interact with others. It will be an educational day to see how others have utilized various conservation practices on their farms to promote water quality and soil erosion, as well as incorporate unique projects to sustain their operation.
Lunch will be provided during the tour with pre-registration by September 10th.
