If you’re a small farm supporter, plan to bring the family out to the annual Placer Farm & Barn Tour, a one-day self-guided tour of nine local working farms, ranches, and vineyards. The tour properties range from Auburn to Loomis, and include orchards, cattle and sheep ranches, a winery, a historic vegetable farm, and an aquatic nursery. Participants will learn how various foods are grown, taste an array of Placer-gown produce, savor locally-crafted wines, and even have an opportunity to watch sheepdogs at work.

Time: 10am to 4pm
