Marin County Annual Farm Day


Each spring Northern California ranchers, farmers, producers, and educators come together to engage scores of young children in hands-on learning opportunities about the source of some of their food at Marin County's annual Farm Day.  This free event takes place from 9 - 11:30 a.m. at the Marin Center Exhibition Hall in San Rafael.

Hundreds of eager, curious children, along with their parents and teachers, attend the one-day event, moving through an array of exhibits and hands-on activities. Grade-school students from around the county get a chance to see farm animals - cows, goats, sheep, poultry and rabbits - up close and to participate in interactive exhibits on farm animals, gardens, environmental education, and the importance of agriculture and farming in Marin.

Information for Teachers

Each year a detailed Teachers' Packet is designed for educators whose students will visit the Marin Master Gardeners exhibit at Farm Day.
