View three family friendly farms in the Underwood area as SFA Lake Agassiz Chapter hosts Festival of Farms from 1 to 4 p.m. Sat., July 13, starting at The Stout Farm, 31755 County Hwy 1, Underwood.

The Stout Farm produces items not easily available in the grocery store – lamb, duck, geese, and wool. This tour will focus on fencing, feed, housing, and marketing those animals as well as incorporating permaculture into livestock systems.

Next, at 2 p.m., the tour moves to Westmill Farm, 30607 Phelps Mill Rd, where farmers Ben and Kelsey (right) are establishing a micro-diversified dairy operation including a jersey milk cow, goats, chickens and one sow.

The tour finishes at 3 p.m. at Beckman Ag Corp, 23662 County Hwy 35, which raises corn, soybeans, wheat and alfalfa on 350 acres as well as vegetables in a high tunnel. The farm is continuing to expand production and is seeking additional marketing outlets.
