Past Study Tours


    Since 2002, members of the Chicago Farmers have traveled to a variety of foreign destinations, including countries in Central and South America, Europe and Cuba to focus on both the culture and agriculture of those destinations, which differ significantly from Midwest row crop production agriculture. In April of 2017, the most recent group of Chicago Farmers travelers went overseas to Austria for a week. While there, they toured several farming operations and orchards and received an overview of that nation's agricultural scene. Cultural features visited were the major cities of Vienna, Groz and Salzburg. The group also enjoyed their visit to several of the locations used for filming the movie "The Sound of Music".
