Farm Day was founded by the need to educate the community about the farm origins of food and to meet the hands responsible for producing the food we eat.
Since its inception in 2013, Farm Day has become an invaluable platform for uniting community and bridging the gap between the public and local agricultural growers, ranchers, and organizations. This annual event serves as a vital gathering point, providing an opportunity for individuals to connect with the often overlooked agricultural sector that operates outside of public access. Now hosted in both Santa Barbara and Ventura counties, with over 30 participating locations, and more than 6,000 visitors each year! It is a dedicated day for the community to get a hands-on learning experience about our local agricultural industry — FREE of charge!
Farm Day is a self-guided tour granting you the freedom to explore numerous participating locations at your leisure. Whether you choose to visit one or many, this flexible event allows you to personalize your experience. The day includes behind-the-scenes tours, trailer rides, tastings, giveaways and kid-friendly activities. Farm Day allows the public to meet local farmers who grow the food we eat.

On Saturday, September 23rd, 2023, more than 10 Santa Barbara County farms, ranches, and agricultural organizations will open their doors and invite the public to experience a day of agricultural activities and tours during the 5th Annual SBC Farm Day.
You may ask, with so many farms involved, how do you decide which to visit during the event?
Luckily, Farm Day is a self-guided tour and we have put together an interactive map for each county that will provide you and your family the information you need to plan your itinerary for the day.
We have added filters on our map if you want to just focus on locations that are kid friendly, grow row crops, raise livestock, STEM based, or are an AG support business.
From our experience, visitors typically find the most success when aiming to see 3-4 farms during the day. Each location has an activity planned for the afternoon, ranging from tastings, tours, lessons, kid activities, or a combination of all of the above. There are activities for everyone in the family!
11th Annual Ventura County Farm Day is on November 4th, 2023
