CFSA Midlands Farm Tour April 6-7, 2013!

Slow Food Cola has been getting more involved with the Carolina Farm Stewards Association (CFSA), which is very active in North Carolina. We love to see that they are getting more involved in SC, too!

Join us in getting enthusiastic about the first-ever Midlands Farm Tour, the weekend of April 6-7, 2013! Sponsored by Whole Foods, it'll be a weekend of hopping around about a dozen local farms.

    What is the itinerary? Are you going to all the farms?

    April 6, 2013

  • Chriscat

    Oh I've just found out that I get in free to the farm of my choice. Sounds like only one. I have a Toyota Echo that holds me and 3 others. Hope someone has a bigger vehicle. Where are we meeting?

    Hi Richard, is their a bus that will shuttle us around to theses farms or will we be car pooling?

    If someone has a vehicle that can hold us all, I can get us in free on Sunday. I am volunteering on Saturday at City Roots.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
