Tour de Coops

Tour de Coops is a self-guided tour and fun event showcasing backyard hen houses, sustainable gardening practices, and small family owned farmers in an urban setting.

Your Farm Foods, a local organization that focuses on connecting consumers directly to local growers through educational and fun events, an online marketplace, and a website.

YFF organizes Tour de Coops with the help of many volunteers and community partners. We hope you will join this year’s celebration to make backyard chicken keeping something everyone in the Valley is BAWKING about while supporting our mission to inspire sustainable urban living and local food eating.
