Shelby County Good Neighbors Farm Tour
The Shelby County Good Neighbors Farm Tour is one event our family looks forward to each year! We realize this event is not located in Oldham County, but is so worth writing about and sharing all of the fun and learning that comes along with it.
The 2022 tour date is on Saturday, September 17th and is 9am-4pm. This year there are nine participating farms!
- Try to visit every farm! Each stop has a unique experience, different from the last stop. Pick up a farm tour map at any participating farm (on the day of the tour), LilyBud Farm Produce or the Shelbyville and Simpsonville Farmers Markets.
- This is a self-guided tour, so go at your own pace, but start early. We found that parking was tricky at some stops last year, so be patient. If one farm is too busy, try another close by farm and then go back to the one you skipped.
- You’re touring farms – wear play clothes and old shoes. Bug spray and sunscreen are recommended also.
- Restrooms might be hard to find – plan ahead with stops at fast food restaurants in town. Porta-Potties are set up at some of the stops. Bring your own hand sanitizer.
- Pack snacks, but also plan a lunch break at one of the stops. Bring cash and a cooler!
- Thank the families that open up their farms! We found last year’s farmers and volunteers to be very kind and informative.
Here is a copy of the map for Saturday. The participating farms are: Walnut Cliff Farms, H-Bar Angus Farm, James E. White Farms, Little Crooked Creek Safari, Twin J Farms, Horsesensing, Mulberry Orchard and Kesanca Farms.
We hope you enjoy the day touring Shelby County farms. We love this event and hope you will too!
