Stephanie Scherzer of Rain Lily and Carol Ann Sayle of Boggy Creek are two of the hosts for the East Austin Urban Farm Tour, taking place this year on April 17. Photo from the East Austin Urban Farm Tour.

It’s been seven years since Rain Lily Farm, Boggy Creek Farm, Hausbar Farms and Springdale Farm joined forces to host a springtime open house so visitors could tour their East Austin farms.

The East Austin Urban Farm Tour, whose hosts have weatheredmanyups and downs in the past seven years, will return from 1 to 5 p.m. April 17 to raise money for the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance.

Tickets cost $55 and include food and drinks from local restaurants and bars at each of the farms. You can start (and pick up tickets) at any of the four farms, which are close enough together to walk or bike from farm to farm.
