AARCH Small Farm Rising Tour
June 15, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

In this outing, we will explore a number of small farms and producers who are part of a new wave of farming in the Champlain Valley. This wave is made up of young farmers dedicated to producing the best possible vegetables, meats, dairy, and other farm-based products. We will visit a group of these farms and enterprises on Mace Chasm Road near Keeseville and meet the people who run them.
Stops will include Fledging Crow Vegetables, Mace Chasm Farm (meats and vegetables), Ausable Brewing Company (beer), and North Country Creamery (milk, yogurt, and cheese). Although this outing is mainly about the resurgence of small niche farming in the area, many of these operations are located on historic farmsteads. We will also enjoy samples and a freshly prepared lunch made from their farm products.
The tour begins at 10 a.m. and ends around 3 p.m.
FEE: $50 for members and $60 for non-members. Lunch is included.
