Montgomery County’s Agricultural Reserve is much more than just a favorite local cycling destination. It’s home to more than 500 farms and orchards that supply much of our region’s fresh produce. There is no better way to experience our local farms than by bicycle! Please join us for the fifth edition of the Montgomery County Farm Tour. Whether you choose a route of 17, 25, 35, 55 or 75 miles, you’ll enjoy lightly traveled roads and rural landscapes dotted with the local farming community’s red barns, silos and grand open spaces. And depending on which route you choose, you’ll have an opportunity to enjoy cider and fresh fruit pie à la Mode at Homestead Farm (we’ll start a little later this year, so the earliest early birds can get a slice!), local honey at the Comus Market, and the best gourmet picnic ever at the Kingsbury family’s beautiful orchard. As in past years, volunteers will deliver the apples, cider and homemade jam that you purchase at Kingsbury’s Orchard back to your cars.
