Join MoKan NAMA for their annual Ag Tour on Wednesday, August 14! 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.

The cost is $100/person and includes breakfast and lunch as part of the tour. The tour will start and end at the Marriott Plaza Hotel with a 7:00 a.m. departure and return to the hotel by 4:00 p.m. Many attendees also register for the NAMA Boot Camp which kicks off right after the Ag Tour.
