Farm Tour


ASAP farm tour

On one summer weekend every year, Western North Carolina farms open their barn doors to the public. The Farm Tour is a chance for you to experience how food is grown and raised in the 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. Pick up a tour map, choose your route, and set out with your friends and family to learn about the region’s agricultural heritage.

Save the date: The 2017 Farm Tour will  be held on June 24 and 25!

Want to learn more about the Farm Tour? Listen to ASAP’s audio series, Growing Local, to hear reflections from tour participants. Enjoy scenes from previous tours by searching #asapfarmtour on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.

You don’t have to wait until June to visit local farms! Many farms host visitors throughout the year. Use our Local Food Guide to search farms that offer tours, workshops, events, u-picks, and on-farm lodging. You can also use our events calendar to find more on-farm experiences.
