Have you ever wondered about the farms and food businesses in the Hardwick area after reading an article, hearing a news blurb or eating some of their products? Well, now is your chance to join us while exploring the region's many farms and businesses.
Beginning and ending at the Center for an Agricultural Economy (CAE), join an all-day caravan to tour farms and food producers. Our first tour is May 17th and then the 3rd Thursday of every month until September. Hear the stories, tour the facilities and meet the people that help make this area so rich in community-based agricultural enterprises as well as the subject of countless news articles and a book.
Starting at the Mill Street office of CAE at 10am, we will lead a group of up to 25 people, caravan-style, to several different farms and/or businesses in Hardwick, Craftsbury, Albany, Greensboro, Cabot and East Hardwick. The tours will be informative, fast paced, fascinating and a fun way to experience the area. The tour costs $50 per person and is free to children 10 years and younger, accompanied by an adult.
Custom tours for private groups are available. Please contact us for more information. For additional information, including dates, photos of past tours and tour details, visit our website at http://hardwickagriculture.org/tours.html
