Plan your Visit Unless your farm tour is on a charter bus, set up by a conference or community event organizer, you’ll be on your own to get from farm to farm. Avoid relying exclusively on your GPS or an Internet-based mapping system to plot your route, since these devices or apps may take you by way of Timbuktu. Consider having a back-up paper map, too. One wrong turn, and you may arrive at the end of a gravel road, in a corn field. Since you’re plying the backroads in the country, don’t count on reliable cellular reception or an Internet connection.
Heading to a Pizza Farm or Farm Dinner? Pack the coolers, produce bags and cash!
You can’t get more fresh than buying directly from the farmers who often harvest the morning before the tour gets underway. Because their farm stands are on site, farmers can better store the fresh produce for the event, guaranteeing that you have only the best quality and selection possible.
