Egg Harbor, Wis. (July 5, 2021) – Saturday, May 29th kicked off the inaugural season of Horseshoe Bay Farms, Inc, now a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Individuals not only learned about the history of the 105 year-old iconic farm, but they also learned about its future. Drew Richmond, Executive Director, led the first tours. “Our goals this year revolve around awareness and accessibility. We want the public to
know they can visit this property, take a tour of the grounds and buildings, learn about its past, and also hear about our plans for the future.”
In 2020, Horseshoe Bay Farms completed an extensive master plan. The plan, taking nearly a year-and-a-half to finalize, will guide the organization and its leadership into the future. Lori Nicholas, a board member of Horseshoe Bay Farms, says the tours are just the beginning. “Not only do we have lots of people walking through the property and learning about this organization, but we have volunteers helping in the vegetable garden, manning the farm stand, and learning how to lead tours in the future. We are able to share our mission with so many more people than ever before.”
Tours last about one and a half hours and are capped around 10 people. Horseshoe Bay Farms plans on having weekly tours through October. “We are also hosting some pop-up open houses throughout the week,” continued Richmond. “These are primarily listed on our Facebook page and visitors can enjoy a self-guided experience if they can’t make a guided tour.” The 8.5-acre property contains 11 original farm structures, a vegetable garden, and a dahlia garden managed by Door County Dahlias.
