The farm centric event of the year is happening this weekend! One of Carolina Farm Stewardship Associations’ annual events, The Piedmont Farm Tour is a way to meet local farmers of all shapes and sizes.
Whether its food, flowers, fiber or just fun, the Piedmont is full of farmers and producers that open their doors with tours, animal interactions, photo op’s, food and purchase options.
How it works? You purchase a weekend or day pass that allows for access to as many farms as you have interest or time to see. From there each farm offers something different so make sure to check out the farm list for what is in season and available. Make your plan based on driving distance (some of the farms are quite a distance apart), what is interesting to your crew (not every farm offers cute farm animal snuggles) and where to purchase food (not every farm will provide prepared food for purchase).
Spring is a great time to see baby animals of all shapes and sizes, gorgeous blooming flowers and the beginning of tasty vegetable season so take advantage of this well organized event!
Below, are the participating farms. Check out the Interactive Google Map for driving directions and descriptions of all the fun things to do at each farm!
