EXPERIENCE THE AGASSIZ/HARRISON CIRCLE FARM TOUR

With rich, fertile soil and a temperate climate, the Harrison River Valley naturally has a deep-rooted history in agriculture. We invite you to experience everything this lush valley has to offer on our Agassiz/Harrison Circle Farm Tour! What is a Circle Farm Tour, you may ask? It’s a self-guided route that lets you experience the very best of agritourism, from the opportunity to purchase fresh products directly from the farm, to sitting down at an eatery to taste delicious fare crafted from the finest local ingredients, to the fun experience of meeting the farm animals, and getting a taste of what daily life on a farm is like. Download our 2022 Circle Farm Tour Guide here and get ready for a tour that will delight your senses!
