MoKan Ag Tour

Written by NAMA on Wednesday, August 1, 2018 , 10:07 am

Join us for the MoKan NAMA Ag Tour on Wednesday, August 15! This is a one-day, on-farm experience where attendees will tour and learn about different nuances of agricultural operations in the surrounding area.

The tour’s first stop will be at Raasch Family Farm, an expansive corn and soybean operation that also includes Carolyn’s Pumpkin Patch. Learn all about this interesting outfit. Next, the group will visit Green Dirt Farm in Weston, Missouri, where lunch will be served. This location includes the original barn, along with a dairy parlor and cheese kitchen, and reflects the owner’s commitment to bring the best sheep’s milk cheeses, yogurt and 100 percent grass-fed lamb to market. The last stop is Jowler Creek Winery, Missouri’s premier sustainable vineyard and winery. Attendees will learn about wine making and what goes into this family operation as well as a little wine tasting.

Breakfast and lunch will be served as part of the tour and is included in the cost of registration.

Cost:  $75/person (same cost for members & non-members)

Dress: Casual, wear closed-toed shoes (no flipflops or heels).

Time:  7:00 AM depart from hotel, return to hotel at 4:00 PM

Please note: The MoKan Ag Tour is prior to the NAMA Boot Camp. While we hope that you’ll attend both, you do not need to be registered for Boot Camp to attend the Ag Tour. Check out the Boot Camp website for more information on both! Register today!
