What is Gather in the GreenSeam?

Gather in the GreenSeam is a celebration of the entire spectrum of people, organizations and businesses that make this area the most special agricultural region in the country. Take part in fun themed weekends focused around food, harvest and natural resources. Enjoy an array of experiences from farm tours to wine tastings with a bunch of entertainment in between. Ride a combine. Take in a cultural event. Sample locally-crafted wines and brews. Cheer at the local football Harvest Bowl.

This new annual event will be September through October. Learn more about agriculture through Gather in the GreenSeam partners providing an ag-related special, activity, service or education component throughout the event.

Theme Weekends:

Each weekend of Gather in the GreenSeam will follow a fun theme. Family favorite fall festivities like hay bale mazes, corn pits and tractor shows abound, with more non-traditional ag-related activities featured at local wineries and breweries. Details on all the theme weekends’ activities will be added below!
