Eight area farms in south central Iowa highlight the 2013 Farm Crawl. Each locale is an open house farm, and is just a short drive away from one another. The event takes place Sunday, October 6 from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. The farms encompass southern Marion County to northern Lucas County, and guests will be able to tour each farm, visit the animals, meet the farmers, see demonstrations, enjoy samples and a lot more. The farms included this year are Dan-D Farms, Blue Gate Farm, Coyote Run Farm, Crooked Gap Farm, Pierce’s Pumpkin Patch, Reichert’s Dairy Air, Schneider Orchards, and White Breast Pottery and Weaving. It’s free admission into each of the farms, though you will have to pay a small fee if you want to enjoy Dan-D Farms’ “Angry Birds” themed corn maze.
