See where your food comes from

When the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association offered its Piedmont Farm Tour 16 years ago, there were a handful of Chatham County farms on the route. This year, you can visit a total of 40 farms, including six ones new to the tour, in a five-county area. The success of this tour indicates how much interest in local food has grown. And the tour is just fun.

The tour will be held April 16 and 17. Tickets are $25 per car, so cram in the fam and hit the road. Visit here for more information. Some farms will sell their products, so carry along a cooler.
