Thanks to coming out for the 10th Annual Tour de Farm!
We celebrated what is unique, healthy, and homegrown in our agricultural and gardening community with a 6-mile family-friendly ride and a 25-mile experienced ride. (Plus this year a portion of the proceeds were donated to help the recovery of Neil Hannum, The Chip Peddler).
And thanks to our sponsors who made this event possible!
The Long Tour traveled down La Posta Road and CR 214 and saw backyard gardens, 2 farms, Sunnyside Meats and Table to Farm Compost.
