We would love to hear your Farm Tour stories and feedback! Share your tour experience by clicking on this survey link, and be entered into a drawing to win a 2017 Farm Tour weekend pass!

If you missed the tour, or are excited to visit more local farms, use our online Local Food Guide to search regional farms to visit, or check out other farm tours, u-picks, and events near you at fromhere.org.

Don’t forget, we moved our Farm Tour to June so there won’t a tour this September.  Save the date now for the 2017 Farm Tour on June 24 & 25. See you next year!

About ASAP’s Farm Tour: For one 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. Each year ASAP’s Farm Tour will feature family farms in different areas of Western North Carolina. Join us next year on June 24 and 25 for the 2017 Farm Tour.

Volunteer for the Tour: Spend one day greeting visitors at a participating farm and then tour for free on the day you aren’t volunteering. Contact Robin at robin@asapconnections.org to volunteer for future tours and ASAP events.

Thank you to our 2016 sponsors for helping to make this weekend such a big success, and for supporting local food and family farms!
