3rd Annual North Indy Farm Crawl

Date: Saturday, September, 23rd, 2023
Time: 9am to 6pm

Want to meet an alpaca? Feed chickens and pigs? See how food is grown and learn how it is harvested?

A Farm Crawl is your chance to do just that! A great way for adults and kids alike to meet local farmers and homesteaders in your area. The Farm Crawl offers plenty of opportunities to meet your neighbors as well as learn how produce is grown, how your meat is raised, and what your local food economy looks like.

This is a self-directed event where you drive from farm to farm in any order you like. You choose how many farms you would like to see and how much time you would like to spend at each one.

Some stops may have demos, tours, food trucks, activities or even products for purchase.

Mike and Tiffany Squires started the farm in 2022 with the goal of taking control of their health by raising their food in a healthy and sustainable way, while also being able to provide for their loved ones and community. They do this by practicing regenerative farming methods, this not only helps their customers, but it also helps the planet as well. KSP’s mission is to help restore the health of our planet’s soil and they believe regenerative farming to be the way. They hope by sharing their operation with the community and the world that they will be able to inspire others to do the same.
