2012 Sandhills Farm Tour

Summer has arrived and even though that means warm days and nights it also means that the kids are out of SCHOOL! So what can a family do on a budget without breaking the bank? They can go to the 2012 Sandhills Farm Tour! For just $15.00 (before June 22nd) and $18.00 the day of, they can take the entire family to visit over 17 different farms located throughout Montgomery, Moore, Richmond, and Anson Counties. Families can sample delicious local food, learn about farms, and take a hay ride! This year we will be starting the Sandhills Farm Tour at the Sandhills Research Station located at 2148 Windblow Road, Jackson Springs, NC 27281. 
The Research Station will host a Grand Kick Off Event, featuring LIVE music from Will McCanless! There will also be hay rides and tours of the Orchards and fruit plots. The Farm Tour will be from 9am-2pm so be sure to attend the 2nd Annual Tour!
