A history of Farm Crawl ...
In 2011, the owners of ManoRun Organic Farm, Weir's Lane Lavender & Apiary, and Jerry's Berries (aka Lotsa Hostas) got together to brainstorm about a fun way to open up farms and to share their experiences of running a farm with the public. Thus, was the start of Farm Crawl Hamilton!
Early in May 2012 these farms opened their doors to a crowd of around 60. Each farm shared their experiences in unique and different ways. In July this crowd expanded more than three fold ... by the end of the July event, the organizers knew they had developed something special.
In 2013, the crawl was expanded to include a couple of other farms and in 2014 it expanded again. Today, ask most locals who enjoy genuine experiences and want to understand how local farms operate and they'll likely tell you they've heard of and probably have attended Farm Crawl.
Farm Crawl Hamilton is a non-profit organization run by the folks from the original three farms. An event run by farmers to ensure you enjoy a genuine experience. Ticket sales cover the costs of marketing, operating, and managing Farm Crawl. Farm Crawl 2015 is expanding yet again and will be full of delights.
We look forward to seeing old and making new friends at this year's farm crawl!
