The farm tour will continue the tradition of getting you behind the scenes at local farms that represent the vibrancy and variety in our local food producers. You'll see diversified fruit and vegetable farms, you'll get up close to all kinds of animals - horses, pigs, cows, chickens, ducks, geese, guineas, donkeys, and more! See up close what it takes to make cheese or process chickens to be ready for your table. Most importantly, bring along a cooler so you can take home ingredients for a fresh-from-the-farm meal!
