"This tour was so interesting and fun! I'm a born and raised Alaskan but my eyes were opened to a wealth of information and resources. Visitors and locals will enjoy this lovely insider experience of our beautiful Matanuska Valley and the hearty farmers who put food on our tables. I'm adding this to the long list of activities all my visiting friends and family must do. Thanks Alaska Farm Tours."

"Margaret and Don did a wonderful tour. We were picked up in Anchorage and during the ride to the first farm gave us some of the history of the farms in the Matanuska Valley and the farms we would tour during the day. This was a much larger tour than they usually give but the coach load of people all seemed to have a great time. We had a catered lunch that was most excellent. I would recommend this tour to people that live in Alaska and would like to know more about where Alaska grown food. I would recommend it to people visiting the state to see what diverse crops can be grown in Alaska."
