Agricultural Tours in the Hardwick Area
September 20, 2012
$50 per person, with no charge for children under 12 years of age. Beginning and ending at the Center for an Agricultural Economy, join an all day caravan tour on the third Thursday of each month from May to September. Hear the stories, tour the facilities and meet the people that help make this area so rich in community-based agricultural enterprises as well as the subject of countless news articles and even a book.
Each tour will be unique. Keeping in mind that summer and fall are very busy agricultural seasons, we can not guarantee a specific site or farm will be on our itinerary.
Annie Gaillard, our CAE Board member and co-owner of Surfing Veggie Farm in Walden or Elena Gustavson, Program Director of CAE, will lead a group of up to 25 people, caravan-style, to several different farms and/or businesses in Hardwick, Craftsbury, Albany, Greensboro and East Hardwick. The tours will be informative, fast paced, fascinating and a fun way to experience the area.
The tours will start at the Center for an Agricultural Economy (CAE) where one of our staff members will give you an overview of our mission and goals, setting the stage for the day's experiences. You will then hop into your cars, vans and trucks, carpooling with the rest of the tour guests, for a caravan-style tour through the Northeast Kingdom's gateway towns.
