Horseshoe Bay Farms provided you the chance to play both tourist and teacher this past year. For the first time, many of the historic buildings on the Egg Harbor parcel were open for guided tours and other activities. Over 300 people took advantage of the offer along with an additional 300 people attending other functions at the site. Horseshoe Bay Farms played an important role in Door County agriculture when it was operational, especially when it hosted its cherry-picking camp for kids to supply fruit for the Sturgeon Bay Fruit Cooperative. Executive Director Drew Richmond says he often walked away from the tours he guided more educated about the property than he did when he first greeted his guests.
Richmond is excited for a second season at Horseshoe Bay Farms after neighbors donated the money necessary to purchase the property and refurbish many of its buildings.
