Event Details

The Women Who Farm Field Day series is BACK! Join us this summer in touring five women-led farms in central Illinois on Sunday afternoons from June through September.

At each event, we will take an extensive tour of a working farm, explore the skill or niche that the host farmer does best, and experience a hands-on activity to learn a new skill.

Delicious, fresh, local refreshments will be provided at each field day to replenish the body, cool the summer heat, and facilitate getting to know each other. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend!

Registration costs $15 and includes a farm tour, refreshments, and a hands-on learning activity.
