Hop on the bus and enjoy a behind-the-scenes, personal tour of three Soil Sisters farms on each Bus Tour of Farms. The tour for each day will visit different farms. Celebrate local agriculture by visiting small family farms led by Wisconsin women committed to a healthy, fresh future for our communities.

Buses will start and end in New Glarus.  Free parking available.

A Soil Sisters guide will ride on the bus with you and narrate the story of our farmhood and answer questions.  Snacks will be provided at the farm stops.

Cost is $60.

Buy tickets here: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/4108830


For regular attendees of Soil Sisters, please note this will REPLACE the free tour day during Sunday. The Bus Tour of Farms will give the opportunity to have a more in-depth and personal farm experience.  Independent of this Bus Tour of Farms, please also note that many ticketed Soil Sisters workshops may include a tour of the farm as a part of the workshop experience.  These new Bus Tour of Farms will also reduce road congestion at the farms and lessen carbon emissions associated with numerous cars moving around the countryside.
