The Future of Food: Farm Tour at North Amherst Community Farm

July 30, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Building the Future of Local Food With a Community Farm 

In the Valley, we’re fortunate to have excellent farmlands and a strong agricultural economy. But farming is still a challenging endeavor, and the land itself can be hard to come by. The non-profit “community farm” model is an innovative approach to this challenge.

On Saturday, July 30, join Kestrel and the North Amherst Community Farm for an inside look at this approach, with a tour of Simple Gifts Farm. Farmer Dave Tepfer will walk us through the workings of the farm, including vegetable and livestock production, and share how community involvement supports it.

Stay after the tour for complimentary “pick your own” flowers & herbs from the fields or get your hands dirty helping the farm’s CSA members with a Garlic Harvest! Hope you can join this special summer event.
