May 10, 2018 2 Comments

Kansas City is home to a variety of fun activities and must-see attractions, including the 2018 I am FarmHer event! If you’re making the trip to spend a few days with the FarmHer team in June, make sure to check out these must-see and do activities for your time in the “City of Fountains”!

Shop

Kansas City is home to some of the best shopping the Midwest has to offer. Enjoy your free time on the Plaza during the event or come a few days early to shop-til-you-drop in the West Bottoms and Zona Rosa areas.


Dine

Everyone knows where to go in KC when it comes to BBQ. Fiorella’s Jack Stack Barbecue is a family-owned business with world-class flare. If local cuisine is more your style, select from hundreds of small restaurants around town.


Drink

Boulevard Brewing Company is the largest specialty brewer in the Midwest, offering the daily tours of their brewing processes. Missouri is also known for their rich viticulture history, promising a lot of opportunities to stop and sip at a winery anywhere in the KC area.


Play

Love Major League Baseball? Catch a game with the Kansas City Royals on Sunday evening or Monday afternoon prior to the big ‘I am FarmHer’ event kickoff! Buy your tickets here.


Discover

Kansas City boasts a plethora of educational learning experiences. Spend time learning about the history of our country at the world’s most comprehensive World War I museum or get creative at Hallmark’s Headquarters.

Debra- we completely understand. Since it is an event that spans multiple days and it in a busy city, it drives up the cost. There are producers rates available but also please look at our Grow by FarmHer events that are targeted towards young women in agriculture. We’d love to see you and your niece there!

I am disappointed at the cost of this event. I was looking to bring my niece who is 15 and starting a goat herd. I thought it would be a great place for her to gain confidence and mentors. Unfortunately the $800 cost for the two of us plus traveling cost is prohibitive. Please plan some lower budget events in the future.

All for the love of family, love of the farm, and a passion for spreading that love to their community and anyone else who might find themselves driving down their Michigan road.

The Freund farm and the FarmHers that are behind it are just so cool.  They are a story of a bustling farm market, a methane digester and Cow Pots.  They are a story of sustainability, innovation and, well, Poo!
