We’ll learn about their various enterprises and how they integrate agritourism at the homestead. Light refreshments will be provided, and wine for tasting.

The Farm:

Kristy and Bob Walker started Walker Homestead near Iowa City, Iowa, in 2013, which includes an organic market garden, an orchard and vineyard, pasture and crop ground and a small venue. They’re hoping to add winter wheat to their crop ground.
