A Few Things to Remember

1) The tour happens Saturday and Sunday, April 22-23, 2017 from 2-6pm each day – RAIN OR SHINE. Farms are open from 2-6 pm on both days. Please don’t arrive before or after tour hours.

NEW THIS YEAR– You told us that you wanted more time to visit the farms, so this year a handful of the farms on the tour are Kick-Off Farms! These farms will open early at 12:00. ONLY THESE SPECIAL FARMS WILL BE OPEN EARLY. See the Farm Tour Google Map for the farms with the star markers to find the kick-off farms.

2) The tours are self-guided. Visit any farm in any order! Start with the understanding that you will not have time to visit all the farms on the tour. A good plan: 3-4 farms per day, allowing 1-2 hours per farm. Pick a farm that most interests you and then plan additional stops nearby.

3) Your button is your car pass – good for a full carload of people. Your button gets you, your friends and family into all the farms on both days of the tour. You don’t need a button for each person. So, cram your car full of folks and head out for some farm-fresh fun! Sorry, no dogs or other furry friends allowed. Cycling groups are welcome to use just one button, too!

4) Nearly every farm will tempt you with farm-fresh produce, meats, and other yummy things. Don’t forget to bring a cooler with ice so you can stock up!

5) Wear comfortable, sturdy shoes and be prepared for muddy lanes and uneven ground. Bring your camera, sunscreen, snacks, water and rain gear, as needed.

6) Have a great time! And, tag any photos you take on the tour with the hashtag #piedmontfarmtour on social media or email them to Amy Armbruster, our Communications Coordinator. We’ll post ’em on our Facebook page!
