Montgomery County Farm Tours

Annual Farm Tour

Pack your picnic basket, a blanket, and some shades, and come out to Button Farm for the return of the annual Montgomery County Farm Tour. If history repeats itself then the weekend promises to be a real scorcher, so come out and find a shady spot for your cooling pleasure. We will have select produce for sale grown hereat Button Farm. Lawn games, farm animals, and self-guided tours promise a fun time for kids of all ages.

Come for the fun on July 23, 2022, from 12:00 pm to 3:00 pm. It's included in your Admissions Fee. You can purchase a ticket through Eventbrite here.

Our barn is built of post-and-beam construction and dates to around the late 19th century. It had been used as a dairy barn during the 20th century. The structure features both hand- and machine-milled lumber with some hewing marks indicating timbers that possibly date to the Revolutionary War era.

Barns are living, breathing works-in-progress and their maintenance and upkeep are never-ending. But like a patchwork quilt, they can tell a story about the people and traditions from which they were made. The barn has been stabilized and a full restoration is set to begin in 2021. Due to structural issues, the barn is currently off-limits to tours, but will eventually be used to house farm animals, our many heritage objects, and hay.
