Get ready for fun exploration of local farms – the Eat Local Farm Tour is coming up quickly: Saturday, July 18! Over 20 local farms are on the tour this year – the self-guided tour let’s you see as many as you want,or maybe spend the day exploring just one.
The tour booklet (digital version available here) is your guide to where farms are located, what times they’re available to tour and what each has to offer.
Charlie Johnson’s apple farm (Whistling well Farm) in Hastings is on the tour, as is 10th Street Farm and Market in Afton. They’re located reasonably close to each other, you could easily enjoy both, and learn where we get almost all of our local apples, as well as our source for local microgreens.
Big River Farm is close by in Marine, and there you can learn about a refreshingly unique program helping immigrant farmers get started growing and selling food in the region.
