Fayette County Greenhouse Tour

The new Fayette County Marketing Group is organizing a self-guided greenhouse tour and promotion to encourage residents and visitors alike to tour five of our county's greenhouses. Visitors will find smiling faces and plenty of mist-haves for spring gardens! Travel our lovely landscape from Oelwein to Hawkeye, stopping at the following participating greenhouse:


To make the tour even more special, the Fayette County Marketing Group is offering an incentive for tour participants. Pick up a Travel Sheet at any participating greenhouse, visit at least four of the five greenhouses over the two day period and spend at least $50 to be entered into a drawing for greenhouse gifts and a grand prize of a $100 gift certificate, to be used at a local greenhouse.

Travel sheets can be downloaded here or picked up at any participating greenhouse. A map along with addresses is available below. For additional information, contact Fayette County Economic Development & Tourism at 563-422-5073.
