About This Activity

So what is this Farm Wellness Day 5K all about?
This is the third year for our fun event, and our goal is to get you out to the Lake Village Homestead Farm for a 5K fun trail run/walk, followed by a kids' fun run/obstacle course and post-run activities unique to us! We have farm tours where you can visit with the animals and a chance to enjoy local healthy food sourced from the farm. There will also be the chance to consult with local wellness professionals!

The 5K rustic trail winds along the shoreline of Long Lake and through 300 acres of meadows and pastures, where you will be treated to close up views of wildlife habitats.

Running or walking are great activities that you can do on your own, but they are even more fun when you're joined by family and friends. We hope you will venture out to the farm and celebrate moving and wellness in nature's beauty.
