Sandhills Self Driving Farm Tour-2018
March 24 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
NC Cooperative Extension, Moore County Extension Master Gardeners, and Sandhills Farm to Table Cooperative is sponsoring a self-driving farm tour on Saturday, March 24. Participants may visit any of eight Sandhills farms that raise the animals and plants that sustain us. Asparagus, strawberries, blueberries, greenhouse vegetables, goat cheese, and many other crops will be featured on this tour. Farmers will tell their story of the challenges and rewards of producing food for their neighbors. They sell at farmers markets, to restaurants, and through the Sandhills Farm to Table Cooperative.
The tour is free and open to the public, but Register by Wednesday, March 21, so that we can provide you with a map to the farms.
Please dress warmly for this event, wear comfortable OUTSIDE SHOES AND CLOTHING. Bring plenty of drinking water, and cash and a cooler for your purchases.
Please keep a close eye on children. These are “working” farms with hazards (electric fences, farm machinery etc.). No pets.
The tours are self-directed. You can visit the farms in any order. Carpool if you can!
Farmers/volunteers will only be available from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Please visit only within these hours.
