Do you know where your food comes from? Sure, you go to the market, exchange a few pleasantries with the farmer as you shell out cash for those locally-grown carrots or free-range eggs, but do you really know where they come from? This weekend is the first of several fall farm tours around the DC area — the perfect opportunity to take the kids out to see where their food comes from, up close and personal.
Virginia’s Rappahannock County Farm Tour takes place Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 25-26. Participating farms include Mount Vernon Farm and the Farm at Sunnyside, two farms whose names might be familiar if you’ve dined at any of DC’s farm-to- table restaurants. Farms are naturally kid-friendly, and this tour promises baby calves, sheep-herding demonstrations and more. Visit the website for more information.
The Loudoun County Fall Color Farm Tour takes place October 15-16, mark your calendar!
