Network with women in agriculture and see several types of operations in action at the upcoming Women in Ag Farm Crawl.

WASHINGTON, Iowa – The inaugural Women in Ag Farm Crawl is set for Saturday, Aug. 27, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Iowa State University Extension and Outreach in Washington County and the Washington County Women in Agriculture Advisory Board are planning the event.

The farm crawl will feature four tour stops in the Washington County and northern Henry County area. The purpose of the farm crawl is to provide a fun networking opportunity for women and also a learning opportunity.

The following destinations are on the tour:

  • Hilltop Dairy. A fourth-generation family dairy farm, this will be the first stop on the farm crawl. Doug Roth is the current owner and manager of Hilltop Dairy, along with his daughter, Madi. They will share more about their operation along with where their milk goes after it leaves the farm. This stop will include some taste testing of dairy products as well.
  • Geode Forestry. Located in northern Henry County, Geode Forestry serves landowners in Southeast Iowa and west-central Illinois. Learn more about Iowa’s forest and timber industry and get an overview of managing timber acres, including new plantings, timber management, upkeep, and marketing and selling.  
  • Iowa State’s Southeast Research and Demonstration Farm. Located near Crawfordsville, this farm is one of the outlying research farms that Iowa State has around the state. The Southeast Iowa Agricultural Research Association owns the farm, but the farm is managed by Iowa State. Learn more about the research farm and some of the local research projects being conducted while enjoying lunch. Following lunch, there will be a tour of some of the research projects.  
  • Revasser Winery. The last stop will be at the Revasser Winery, which will include an optional wine tasting for those 21 years or older who are interested in participating for $10. Learn more about this winery, viticulture and winemaking.   

Participants will meet at the ISU Extension and Outreach Washington County office between 8-8:20 a.m., and the tour bus will leave for the first stop at 8:30 a.m. The bus will return to the extension office by 3 p.m.  

Registration is $30. Register by calling the ISU Extension and Outreach Washington County office at 319-653-4811 or register online.
