10th Annual Tour de Farms - 2016

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).
