We are excited to announce the first annual VABF Richmond Farm Tours and we ask you to save the date for this fun and educational sustainable farm tour weekend, September 20th and 21st, 2014.

Shake the hand that feeds you. Richmonders will be encouraged to load up their cars with friends and family (one ticket covers everyone!) and head out for a day, or two, of meeting farmers and seeing where and how their food is grown. The tour will be self-paced with farms located in clusters throughout the area. Information on participating farms will be available via a tour program, a mobile app and on our web site.

The tour cost will be $25 per vehicle in advance. Entrance tickets will also be available on tour days at every tour farm for $30. (Discounts for VABF members. Volunteers will receive a free pass). More details to come!

Now accepting applications. Farms interested in participating in the tour weekend are encouraged to apply.

Funding for the tour is provided in part by the USDA Specialty Agriculture Grant Program, Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
