Haywood farms part of agriculture tour

Written by 

The Family Farm Tour, organized by Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project (ASAP), will be held on the weekend of June 25 and 26. The event is a self-guided driving tour into the farms of 41 Western North Carolina food producers — many of which are not regularly open to visitors.

The four Haywood County farms are Chambers Farm Market, Mountain Organic Research and Extension Unit, Sunburst Trout and Ten Acre Garden. The remaining 37 farms are located in Buncombe, Yancey and Madison counties.

During the tour, participants can taste farm-fresh treats, interact with farm animals, learn how food grows and meet the community’s food producers. An admission button, which admits an entire carload, can be purchased online or at several local businesses (a list of these can be found online). Buttons are $25 in advance. A tour guide, including a map and direcetions, tour tips and details, is also available at these vendors or online for download. or 828.236.1282.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
