The Farm, Henderson County, NCASAP’s Farm Tour is just around the corner!

September 22 and 23, 2012 1-6 PM

Over this late September weekend, the gates and barns of WNC farms will open to the public – even those farms that don’t normally allow visitors. This self-guided driving tour is your chance to learn how food grows, taste farm-fresh treats, interact with farm animals, and meet the community’s food producers.

ASAP is an incredible local nonprofit whose mission is to help local farms thrive, link farmers to markets and supporters, and build healthy communities through connections to local food.

Visit farms in Buncombe, Henderson, Haywood, Madison and Yancey Counties. For a complete list, go to asapconnections.org/farmtour.
