13TH ANNUAL GUIDED FARM VISIT
MONDAY NOVEMBER 18
WHY A GUIDED FARM VISIT?
When evaluating a farm, it is important to know what to look for, what to ask and what really matters. This professionally guided farm visit enables informed eaters and food activists to learn these things. Farmers and ranchers accompany us as well! We all enjoy the opportunity to have rich connections as well as the chance to learn from and appreciate more the successful farmers and others who devote their lives to producing nutrient-dense food.
