One of my favorite places to visit during late summer and throughout the fall is Swore Farms (I really am a farm girl at heart!). Mike and Wendy Swore and their five children own a small local farm that has been in their family for three generations. I admire their willingness to carry on the family tradition. As well as, provide local produce and agricultural education for the community. I end up at the farm on many weekends buying corn. I have been eating (and freezing dozens of ears) of their yummy corn for several years now, it's the best sweet corn I've tasted. I also like to peruse the "garage" while I'm there to find other fresh veggies to supplement what I can't grow in my own garden. They have a great variety of vegetables; I especially like the red potatoes.
You can visit the Swore Family at the farm Saturdays from 10:00am - 4:00pm (daily from 10:00am - 7:00pm during corn season). If you don't want to drive out to the farm, you can visit them Wednesday (from 4:00 - 8:00pm) and Saturday (from 9:00am - 1:00pm) at the Portneuf Valley Farmer's Market or Tuesdays at the Chubbuck Farmer's Market (from 3:30 - 7:30pm).
Starting October 1st Swore Farms will be hosting their Annual Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch every Friday (4:00pm to dusk), Saturday (10:00am to dusk), and Mondays (4:00 to dusk) for Family Night. Groups and classes are also welcome to call Wendy (705-0991) to schedule a visit. I have taken my Cub Scout groups on several occasions, and we have always had a fabulous time. I love that Wendy teach the kids about farming and agriculture while they are having a fun time.
