family farm tour 2010

fam farm

I am so excited to share with you guys a fantastic event Family Farm Tour 2010, organized  by the Appalachian Sustainable Agricultural Project, is your invitation to visit 37 farms and gardens throughout six counties in Western North Carolina. The region is home to agriculture of all kinds, ranging from century farms cultivated by the same family for generations, to certified organic farms, to urban gardens. It is NEXT weekend!

June 26 and 27 from 1-6pm

purchase a button for $25 HERE

you can Volunteer HERE 

Here is the low down from the ASAP on what you can expect from the Family Farm Day!

Here’s how it works: Get a farm tour map and button. Gather your friends, fill a car, choose the farms you want to visit, and plan a route. There are more than enough choices to fill a schedule for Saturday and Sunday. Come with a cooler and your appetite. A variety of vegetables and fruits, trout, beef, pork, lamb, eggs, artisan cheeses, herbs, mushrooms, honey, garlic, preserves, and much more are available to sample or for sale. Products including yarn, soap, and crafts are offered as well.

Watch animals such as bison, llamas, baby lambs, and bunnies. See traditional skills in practice—and even try them out yourself—during demonstrations of border collie shepherding, outdoor apple butter making, milking, the maple syrup tapping process, and wool spinning. Or, learn about new ideas during a tour of renewable energy systems, see a hydroponics system, visit an edible landscape, or explore a garden labyrinth. Eat bread fresh from a wood fired oven and artisan ice cream, and stop for a picnic at one of the many beautiful farms along the way.

HOW AMAZING is this? I can not wait! Jack is going to LOVE Family Farm Day!! Are you going? Please let me know if you are!!

My good blogging buddy and fellow sustainable living, garden growing, organic eating, cow buying, MOMMY BLOGGER OF THE YEAR, Erin would LOVE this too! Too bad she’s in Kansas! Just click your heels sister and come with us!
