Tour de Farms is a unique eco-tourist event that will promote local farms in the Hudson Valley on October 11, 2009 through a unique bicycle tour.
The bike tour will consist of several routes of varying length throughout southern Ulster County’s scenic farms and farm stands. After the tour, a gathering at Phillies Bridge Farm will feature skill-sharing workshops led by farmers and community members. Topics will include gardening, cooking, and food storage techniques. Local caterers and restaurateurs will also be offering local food creations for purchase.
Registration fees for the Tour is $35. Children (under age 13) are $15 and must be accompanied by an adult. For a wonderful stay-cation make reservations to pitch a tent at a participating farm on the route or stay at a beautiful B & B.
For further information see their website. All proceeds raised will go towards fighting hunger in the Hudson Valley.
