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.

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.

Under the watchful eye and keen sense of the FarmHer of the operation, Dana, the farm has boomed.  Dana takes pride in running the operation and she works hard to keep it strong and successful, getting just a few hours of sleep a night during peak crawfish season.  But, as she says, she loves what she does and it is clear to me that this Louisiana woman, not only loves running the farm but also, spreading a little bit of her beloved culture, via crawfish, all around the country.
