The 2015 Eat Local Farm Tour was a great success! The Eat Local Farm Tour is a sponsored event hosted by local metro Co-op’s who believe that supporting our local growers is vital to providing healthy food and participating in environmental protection. In the cooperative spirit, we work together to bolster our local foods economy.

The tour is a great time for families to get outside and meet their local producers. This year we got lucky with a beautiful day! The sun was shining and the rain held off. There were six farm “clusters.” Each cluster highlighted a variety of area farms. One of our local farms was Simple Harvest Farm Organics. They hosted a variety of events including milking goats, wagon tours and greenhouse tours. This is an annual event that happens every July. Stay tuned for details on the 2016 ELFT!
