Keeping it Local With the Charlotte Area 'Know Your Farms Tour'

Posted: Updated:

The ‘Know Your Farms Tour,’ which showcases 14 farms in the Charlotte area was going down all weekend.

The tour features a wide variety of farms ranging from produce and flowers to livestock and alpacas.

Volunteer coordinator, Greg Jones, says “we try to help people understand that French fries don’t just come from the store, they come from potatoes. So kids know what potatoes look like, kids know what sheep look like, they know what cows look like, they understand where their food comes from and not just off the shelf somewhere.”

In addition to educating people about where their food comes from, another goal of the ‘Know Your Farms Tour’ is to help stimulate the local economy.
