This coming weekend (September 19th & 20th) the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association will hold its 4th Annual Eastern Triangle Farm Tour. Visitors will be able to tour 20 different farms in the Raleigh, NC area with the purchase of one $25 button. Each button admits a full carload, so pack your friends and family in and come see where your food comes from! This year’s tour features three Animal Welfare Approved farms (listed below) and an urban chicken walk hosted by Doug Brown, the farmer behind Animal Welfare Approved Fowl Attitude Farm in Cedar Grove, NC. The walk will take place at Durham’s SEEDS garden (stop #1) at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.
