JOIN US FOR A SELF-GUIDED WEEKEND OF TOURING THE SLO COUNTY FARM TRAIL
Savoring summer on the SLO Co Farm Trail is what Open Farm Days are all about.
Many of our local family farms will be swinging open their gates to welcome ticket holders to tour, taste and learn about our local agriCULTURE.
3 DAYS • 18 FARMS • 5 ROUTES
Demos, tastings and farm tours will be happening along the Open Farm Days Trail for our ticket holding guests to learn how our food is grown and products made here In SLO County.
General admission tickets include both days to tour, taste, and learn along the trail.
This family-friendly experience is an up-close chance to learn about agriculture through demonstrations, tastings, and farm tours. Ticket holders will savor summer through a self-guided tour featuring over 15 farms and ranches and some two dozen producers and purveyors. This inaugural event will benefit Glean SLO, the SLO Food Bank, and the Great AGventure. Local farms will be swinging open their gates to showcase everything from bee keeping to olive growing, while local ranchers will introduce you to goats, alpacas, sheep, pigs, and more, while local purveyors will showcase their locally made using our locally grown. Relax at picnic spots, shop at pop-up markets, and enjoy tastings of food and potent potables. For an additional charge, farm fresh brunch boxes and tasty lunch options featuring local fare are also available, as is an elegant table-to-farm Greenhouse Dinner.

Savoring Summer in the Greenhouse
6:00p-9:00p | Clearwater Color Nursery, Los Osos
On Saturday, July 16th, we'll be hosting a beautiful Savoring Summer Table to Farm dinner at Clearwater Color Nursery.
Table to Farm?! Isn't that backwards? Well, no! We're bringing the table to the farm (literally)!
Beginning at 6pm, nursery owners Elliot and Megan Paulson will be offering bubbles and bites while taking ticketed guests on an exclusive tour of their beautiful green houses. From seedlings to salad, you will learn how their gardens grow.
A grazing station will pop-up midway through the tour to get your taste buds flowing, then get on your way to the dining "house" where you will experience the season's freshest, prepared by SLO's Finest. Local wines will be paired with each course by the Paso Robles Wine Merchant.
