ASAP’s Annual Events

Farm Tour: On a weekend in late September, the gates and barns of Western North Carolina farms open to the public. ASAP’s Farm Tour is a chance to experience firsthand how food is grown and raised in the Southern Appalachian mountains, taste farm fresh products, meet farm animals, and connect with the community’s food producers. Discover some of Western North Carolina’s unique and beautiful working farms through tours, demonstrations, and hands-on activities.

Business of Farming Conference: If you’re currently farming or seriously considering farming as a profession, this conference is for you. Join farmers, agriculture professionals, and business and marketing specialists every February for learning sessions and opportunities to meet with restaurant and wholesale buyers.

CSA Fairs: Want to learn about Community Supported Agriculture and meet area CSA farmers face-to-face? Attend our CSA Fair, where you can gather information or even sign up on the spot for your share of the season’s bounty.

Growing Minds Farm to School Conference: Each year, our Growing Minds Farm to School Program conducts topical conferences. Past events have covered Farm to School cooking and starting Farm to School programs in schools and communities. Visit growing-minds.org to find current details.
