Want to learn about fiber farms?

11 area farms in Minnesota and Wisconsin will be holding self-guided tours from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sept. 29 and 30 to show people what it's like to be a modern day fiber farmer.

The North Star Farm Tour will include farms from Goodhue County like Berryhill Farm in Pine Island and Clear Spring farm and Frosty Acre Farms in Welch that will give people a chance to learn about many different fiber and farm animals, while also having a chance to shop local products from the respective farms.

Participants will get a chance to see alpacas, yaks, and goats, to name a few, depending on which farm they visit.
