Explore 16 Local Farms on Campbell County Backroads Farm Tour

Campbell County Backroads Farm Tour/Provided

Join the Campbell County Conservation District Farmland Work Group’s Fifth Annual Backroads Farm Tour scheduled for Saturday, July 19, 2014, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Rain or Shine!

Travel the hills and valleys of Campbell County on a self-guided driving tour to discover agriculture adventure. The farm gates at 16 farms will open to guests to explore the source of our local food chain: the farms and vineyards. Inside the gates and fences you will meet local farmers and vintners. Learn where their farm story began, how they see our local agriculture growing, and their role as a provider to our local communities, how food grows, taste farm-fresh treats, and hang out with farm animals.

The tour is provided to create an identity that celebrates and brings awareness to Campbell County’s local food production, consumption, and sustainability.

You can download a map from our website at www.home.fuse.net/campbellcd to plan your day or pick up a hard copy at any of the Campbell County Public Libraries, our office in the Alexandria Court House, Campbell County Extension Service in Highland Heights, and from various merchants around Alexandria.

Don't forget to bring a cooler and cash!
