OSAGE, Iowa – Have you ever wondered how the food gets from the farm to your table? Farms in the north Iowa answered that question on Saturday during the Fresh Farm Tours.

Farmers had equipment, produce and animals on display for visitors to see and ask questions about and Steve Rachut, owner of Steve’s Sweet Corn and Produce said he was excited to teach people about his sweet corn.

“It’s something new that we’re starting and it’s going to, people are coming to tour different farms and learn about where their produce and meats and everything comes from,” Rachut said.

Rachut harvested some of his sweet corn to prepare and serve to people so they could sample some of what they saw throughout the tour.

If you didn’t make it out to one of the farms today, the Fresh Farm Tour continues on Sunday, Sept. 15 in Eagle Grove from 2-6 p.m. and again again on Sunday, Sept. 22 from 12-6 p.m. in Franklin County.
