Open Farm Days

July 14 - 16, 2023

Presented by FARMstead ED and 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.

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.


This family-friendly experience is an up-close chance to learn about agriculture through demonstrations, tastings, and farm tours. Ticket holders will visit local farms, ranches, producers and purveyors. Local farms will be swinging open their gates to showcase everything from bee keeping to olive oil production, 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. Places for picnics will be abundant, featuring local provisions & libations for sale.  The planning has begun, so follow us along as we will have lots more to share about this fit for foodies, family friendly event featuring our local family farms.
