New This Year
2017 Homegrown Farm Fête!
Over the past 7 years of the Farm Tour, we’ve met so many great small growers and producers in the county that we couldn’t fit them all into the tour. This year, we’ve gathered them together under one BIG tent, donated by the Food Train, to present the 1st Annual Homegrown Farm Fête At Edg-Clif Farms & Vineyard.
There will be antique farm equipment on display, a haystack for the kids to jump in and animals… alpacas for sure and maybe goats & chickens, too! Local folks will be selling their produce, homegrown beef, honey, homemade jellies, jams, soaps, baskets, hand spun wool, grilled sausages, and hot kettle corn. So, during your tour of the Farmer’s Markets, growers and farms, don’t forget the Farm Fete at Edg-Clif. We’ll be open Saturday, August 26th from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm.
