This popular self-guided tour of historic barns brings awareness to the public of our strong agricultural heritage and how barns were constructed to last. Barn docents will greet ticket holders at each barn location to share information and answer questions.  During this time, artists and crafters will be creating at the barns. Antique farm equipment and tools will be on display. See a working dairy farm, a sheep farm, Red Angus beef cattle, donkeys and other farm critters.
