Come Face to Face with Animals, Agriculture, and More During an Urban Farm Tour

For more than 75 years, Heifer International has worked with people all around the world to end hunger and poverty and care for the Earth. On Friday, November 29, join the organization for the Urban Farm Tour at 9:00 a.m. at the Heifer Village and Urban Farm in Little Rock.

The Urban Farm is a three-acre, multi-purpose garden located behind the Heifer headquarters in Little Rock, Arkansas. Created as part of Heifer International’s vision to actively engage in the local community, the Urban Farm has grown from a small community garden into an operation that serves several Arkansas food networks. The Urban Farm tour is a 30-minute tour of the gardens and animals for all ages.

When you visit the farm, you can meet alpacas, chickens, goats, pigs and more while learning about how animals are helping families overcome hunger and poverty. You can also take a walk through the gardens and see for yourself how Heifer applies eco-friendly agricultural practices in the field. There will be an option to have lunch in the Heifer Village picnic area is included, but picnic tables must be reserved. Please note: Heifer Urban Farm is a working farm. Opportunities to touch animals are not guaranteed.

Heifer International works to end hunger and poverty in partnership with the communities they serve. Their programs support entrepreneurs around the world, creating lasting change from the ground up. It begins with a seed investment of livestock or agriculture, followed by mentorship to help project participants build a business, and ultimately to gain access to supply chains and markets.

The Urban Farm Tour is free to attend; however, donations are always appreciated and may be made in the Shop@Heifer during your visit. Please register online at www.heifer.org.

At The Canopy Apartments in Little Rock, Arkansas, we promote resident satisfaction with an array of incredible amenities—both inside and outside of your apartment.
