FARM EVENTS: 2021
Visiting farms during the growing season will give you a feel for the range of Concord farms—varying in size, land ownership, and farm practices. Meet several Concord farmers and take a look behind their farm stands! A PSA for in person event/tours: Events often require walking on rough (dusty) farm roads and may include encounters with unfriendly weeds and stinging insects – good footwear (not sandals) is suggested, and folks with allergies to bees or wasps should take appropriate precautions. We hope to see you soon!
