ASAP’s Farm Tour

 



Get a feel for ASAP’s Farm Tour by watching our 2013 tour video.

Purchase your 2015 Farm Tour Pass, September 19-20.

Just what is the Farm Tour? On a weekend in late September, the gates and barns of WNC farms open to the public—even those farms that don’t normally allow visitors. ASAP’s Farm Tour is a chance to learn how local food is grown and raised, taste farm fresh treats, hang out with farm animals, and meet the community’s producers.  Enjoy touring some of Western North Carolina’s most unique and beautiful working farms, and learn firsthand about agriculture in the mountains. Just grab a tour map, bring along some of your friends and family,  and set out on your own local food adventure.  Purchase your pass online and Learn more here.

Choose your own farm adventure at ASAP’s 2015 Farm Tour:

When: Saturday & Sunday, September 19-20, 12-5 pm

Where: Family Farms in Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson, Madison, Transylvania, McDowell, and Yancey counties.

Details: Visit your old  favorites and make new farm friends! Every year we feature both new and returning farms from multiple counties across WNC. Purchase your pass online and check back for updates on participating farms, special tour events, and new contests and giveaways! . Check out our Farm Tour photo gallery to get a feel for the event or watch our 2013 tour video above.
