This Saturday and Sunday is the 16th annual piedmont farm tour – billed as “America’s largest farm tour”. It’s a great way to learn about the Triangle’s local and organic farm & food scene. You’ll get to meet local farmers & tour their farms!
With 6 new farms and 40 farms in all, the 2011 Piedmont Farm Tour has something for everyone! We are pleased to add to the tour this year, beautiful Lindale Organic Dairy, a 5th generation farm, an exciting new permaculture-style farm up in Hillsborough – Ever Laughter Farm, and Cozi Farm, which is raising animals near downtown Saxapahaw! And, Suki Roth will be opening up her Herb Haven! These farms, plus lots of your favorites, will make a great tour!
Load up a car with your friends and family , choose the farms on the map you’d like to visit and get out in the countryside! The tour is self-guided and farms and sites are located throughout the Triangle in Alamance, Chatham, Durham, Orange, and Person counties.. Visit any farm in any order. And, don’t forget to take a cooler so that you can take home some of the farm fresh products for sale at many farms!
Advance tickets are $25/car. On the days of the tour, tickets will be $30. The farms will be open from 1pm – 5pm each day. For more information, maps, and tickets, visit http://carolinafarmstewards.org/pft2011.shtml
