Date(s) - August 25, 2019
9:00 am-5:00 pm

Spend a day learning about three amazing farms in the Treasure Valley! You’ll get to meet the farmers, tour their farm, and learn about how they are growing sustainably and feeding the community.

We’ll start out by meeting at Boise Farmers Market location on Shoreline Drive to load up on the tour bus. The day will include tours of three farms. There will be a picnic midday (included with your ticket!). Peaceful Belly will have a market stand set up on site, so you will be able to puchase goods directly from the farm! We’ll have coolers available for your groceries, so no need to worry about the heat!

This tour is set up for adults and children over the age of 10 years old. Please do not buy tickets for children under the age of 10. This is an educational tour and does not have activities for children. These are working farms and your children will not be able to run freely around or leave your side.

True Roots Organics: Farmed by Ian and Kelsey, True Roots is a small-acreage Certified Organic farm located in Marsing, Idaho. They specialize in nutrient dense, locally grown food.

Next Generation Organics: In 1967, Grandma and Grandpa sold the farm on Gopher Knob and moved to town! in 2005, Elayne and Bart bought their place and are now turning it into a farm! They specialize in plant starts, and also grow corn for polenta, squash, and more fall staple veggies!

Peaceful Belly: Peaceful Belly was founded in 2002 by Clay and Josie Erskine. The farm has grown over the years and is now located at Vine and Branch Ranch in Sunny Slope right outside of Caldwell, Idaho. They specialize in growing hand-raised vegetables, herbs, flowers, and berries-over 180 different types of veggies, most of which are heirloom varieties.
