Save the Date – A Drive in the Country” Farm Tour, Sunday, Oct 3, 2010, 1-6pmEnjoy “A Drive in the Country” and see some of the huge variety of agriculture in southeastern Franklin County and nearby. About a half dozen farms/agriculture operations will open their doors so you can see what they do and talk to the farmers. This is a drive it yourself tour and you can choose which locations you want to visit and in any order you like.
When: Sunday, Oct 3rd, 1pm-6pm, rain or shine
Why: Have a pleasant afternoon visiting places that provide the food you eat and enjoy. Talk to the families that make it all happen and learn why they love (most days!) what they do and what challenges they face. Some stops may have additional groups like 4-H, Soil and Water Conservation District, OSU Extension, etc. to provide additional information.
Where: Plan to visit those stops that interest you. As of today we hope to visit a bee/honey farm, a family grain farm, a large greenhouse, a farm market and a winery.
There is no cost to participate and no need to register. Pick up tour info/addresses at any of the stops or go to the Franklin County Farm Bureau web page for addresses and final information, http://ofbf.org/counties/franklin/
