Local Food. Strong Farms. Healthy Communities

ASAP’s Farm Tour


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

Purchase your 2015 Farm Tour Pass, Saturday-Sunday, 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 food grows, taste farm-fresh treats, hang out with farm animals, and meet the community’s food producers.  Visitors can connect firsthand with a wide range of Western North Carolina food and fiber producers and learn about the rich diversity of agriculture in the region. Connecting farmers and supporters like you helps us build a stronger local food system and healthier communities.

Check out our Farm Tour photo gallery to get a feel for the event or watch our 2013 tour video above. Or check out the Storify summary from the 2014 Farm Tour.

Save the Date: ASAP’s 2015 Farm Tour will be held on September 19-20.  Purchase your pass in advance and check back for updates on participating farms, special tour events, and new contests and giveaways! Interested in being a farm stop on the tour? Contact Robin Lenner for details. 

Interested in volunteering for the 2015 Farm Tour? Sign up here or contact us at for more information. Volunteers assist one farm on the tour from 12-6pm by greeting and checking in visitors. In exchange for their service, volunteers are invited to take the tour for FREE on the day they are not working and bring along a carload of their family and friends!
