That Farm Tour is going to...

That Farm Tour is going to feature five farms in the Lincolnton area and volunteers are needed to help with this special event.

The fifth annual Know Your Farms Tour will take place the weekend of September 14-15, 2013. On this special weekend, 30 farms located in nine counties around Charlotte will open their barn doors to the public to give thousands of people a chance to see a working farm up close and to connect on a deeper level with the food we eat.

Volunteers are needed to help with the annual farm tour on both Saturday and Sunday September 14-15. The Lincolnton area farms are on the tour only on Sunday and are open for touring from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Volunteer shifts run from 12:15 to 3:45 p.m. and 3:15 to 6:45 p.m.

Volunteers are needed to be Farm Registration Hosts where you greet tour goers, provide information and directions, and take tickets.

Each volunteer receives a free ticket to the farm tour. Tickets are good per vehicle and volunteers can return with friends and family to enjoy the tour with their free vehicle pass.
