Piedmont Farm Tour

The weather is warming up. Spring crops are popping up their heads. Baby animals are running around on pasture. What a great time to get out and see sustainable farms! What a great time to support and encourage small-scale growers!

The Piedmont Farm Tour is one week away: Saturday and Sunday April 16 to 17, 1 to 5 PM ! 40 great farms to choose from.

1. Tickets on sale online at Carolina Farm Stewards website or at retail locations around the Triangle: $25 per carload for both days. (Weaver Street Markets, Harmony Farms, Chatham Marketplace, Durham Farmers Market @ Durham Central Market booth) Full info at
2. More on-farm volunteers are needed: help out one afternoon and get a free tour pass and beautiful heirloom tomato T-shirt.
3. The tour is partnering with the awesome 10% Local Food Campaign and everyone who takes the tour should make the pledge and "go 10%". It's fun, easy and sends a strong signal that local food is important. Check out
4. The Special Mini-Bus VIP Beginning Farm Tours on horticulture and livestock are sold out. They will have them again next year.
5. Thanks to the founding co-sponsor, Weaver Street Market.
