Farm Crawl organization is impressive. Not only are there well-placed signs to guide you to all eight sites, but when you arrive a competent and pleasant parking staff creates a steady flow of traffic. Impressive!
The Farm Crawl is distinctly cosmopolitan with guests from as far as Africa and China. Closer to home, the Crawl is popular with Des Moines residents.
One said that it was particularly important to her children, not only as a source of great fun, but as a tiny view of a real farm. Another Des Moines visitor said, “I felt honored to be allowed to visit these special farms!”
Honored, indeed. Knoxville, Pleasantville, Melcher-Dallas, Chariton, and Lacona should be honored to sit so close to the many creative farmland endeavors that cluster at these eight sites. As the Crawl partners market their distinctive products, they also strengthen our farm economy and share our distinctive rural tradition.
The Farm Crawl. First Sunday of October in 2014. Save the date.
