2022 Stand For Ag | Season 4: Creating Community with Agri-Tourism
Lorin Fahrmeier from Lexington, MO is a farmHER that works side by side with her husband and two children, on their farm, where they grow close to 20 acres of fresh fruits and vegetables. With a focus on selling their diverse crops direct to customers, they sell their fresh produce and wine at the City Market in Kansas City on Saturdays during warmer months. On an annual basis their family welcomes thousands of visitors to their farm and roadside market for u-pick berry and pumpkin picking, educational experiences and wine tastings. Lorin works diligently to help educate their customers about how their food is grown and more importantly, how to prepare it for their families.
Lorin lives and breathes her passion for food and farming as she works for University of Missouri-Extension as the Missouri Farm to Institution Project Coordinator, a position that allows her to influence Missouri citizens in a new way by connecting Missouri farmers to schools and other institutions to help provide fresh, local foods for students and other customers.
