The tour is self-guided and farms and sites are located throughout the Eastern Triangle in Wake, Durham, Granville, Franklin and Person counties. Visit any farm in any order. This year we have 26 farms on the tour and 7 meal stops!
Don’t forget to bring a cooler so that you can take home some of the farm fresh products for sale at many of the farms.
Remember, the tour is RAIN OR SHINE!
The 2015 tour is scheduled for Sept. 19-20 from 1-5 pm and we will need 100 volunteers to make this year’s event possible. It’s fun and easy! The farmers will be busy conducting tours, so we need volunteers at every farm to check in guests, sell passes, and act as a friendly ambassador. We are looking for volunteers to work from 12:30 – 5:00 pm on one day of the tour only … we’ll give you a free pass to enjoy the tour yourself for the other day! Also, all official volunteers will receive a wonderful, all new farm tour bee-shirt, courtesy of our sponsor, Whole Foods Market.
Bring a friend! Most farms have slots for two official volunteers per day, so if you’re bringing a friend choose a farm where two volunteers are needed and register separately so that we know all mandatory spots are filled. But if you’d like to partner with someone for a farm that calls for only one volunteer, you may feel free … just be sure to provide their name and email address on your own registration. (Please note, we are happy to provide a free pass to extra volunteer guests, but the gifts are only available for volunteers in ‘official’ spots.)
