Meet your local farmers. See where your food is grown!
Since 2006, Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture has hosted the High Country Farm
Tour to strengthen our local food system by: connecting producers and
consumers, educating the public about sustainable food and agriculture,
and providing farmers with opportunities to increase their income.
We believe that by providing community members with opportunities to visit
local farms, connect with farmers, and learn more about growing food
sustainably, we can create an educated consumer base that supports and
advocates for locally-owned and operated farms and businesses.
Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture would like to invite you to
participate in the High Country Farm Tour this summer. The
Farm Tour is an annual event that connects consumers and
producers and educates the community about the
importance of local food and agriculture. There are a variety
of learning experiences, activities, and products at the farms
that offer fun for the whole family, such as Against the
Grain’s biodynamics and seed-saving workshops, Apple Hill
Farm’s animal-loving atmosphere, and Landmark Farms
Paca Palace Fiber Shop. In addition to the farms, we have
some other exciting extras including Lil’ Locavore Activity
Books for kids, and a farm tour photo contest. For ticket
sales and more information please visit our website:
