The tour is noon to 2 p.m. July 27 at the farm, 15911 N.W. 41st Ave., Ridgefield.

Tour participants will learn about keeping goats and improving management practices and can share solutions that have worked on their property.

The tour will be led by the landowners/farmers and representatives of the Small Acreage Program. The program is co-sponsored by WSU Clark County Extension and Clark County Environmental Services Clean Water Program.
