A project of the Small Farm Guild, Twilight Tours are an opportunity for area farmers to learn from each other’s practices through a series of farmer-led workshops. With a concentration on hops, New Mission Organics also grows a few acres of hard cider apples and a few hundred wine grapes. At this event, you’ll see how New Mission Organics is integrating a new hoophouse and processing facility into their operation, along with new sheep in the hopyard. 

Farm tours are particularly valuable for beginning farmers as a way to build relationships, observe a wide variety of management styles and find support from a peer network. Free, but donations are appreciated and support the Small Farm Guild. Pre-registration is required. At 6pm food and beverages will be provided, farm tour at 7pm, discussion to follow. Donations accepted on behalf of the Small Farm Guild.
