Thompson is a farm friendly community with over 20 working farms within its borders. The Thompson Agriculture Committee, Economic Development Commission, and Thompson Recreation Department have teamed up to offer this new program to promote locally grown products and outdoor recreation.
Pick up your free Thompson Farm Passport and then, from May to November, visit and explore the participating farms. Each farm offers varied activities and events (as listed in the passport.)

Passports will be available beginning April 19 (Thompson Recreation Office) and in addition, May 5th at the first event in the series and all participating farms. Limit one passport per family.
