2013 Sandhills Farm Tour

Do you like buying local?  Do you enjoy visiting farms?

 If so be sure to take your family on the 2013 Sandhills Farm Tour! Local farms in Montgomery, Anson, Moore and Richmond Counties will be hosting the third annual farm tour Saturday, June 15th from 9am-5pm

The farms participating last year were phenomenal and this year we have increased the participation to 18 Farms! This year’s kickoff event will be at the Sandhills Research Station (2148 Windblow Rd, Jackson Springs) with registration beginning at 8:30am. We will have fresh sausage biscuits for sale, a hayride and much more! This is a perfect family outing where you can tour various farms, sample great locally grown food, and have a day of excitement!

The afternoon tours will begin at the Star Heritage Center (454 South Main Street, Star, NC) around Noon.  Locally sourced hamburgers will be for sale during lunch while local musician Will McCanless performs.  There will also be a mini farmers' market and some family fun activities.

If you are interested in attending tickets are only $20.00 per carload at participating Extension offices before June 14th! Tickets can also be purchased the day of the event at the Sandhills Research Station from 8:30am-11:30am for $25.00 per carload and at the Star Heritage Center from Noon to 2pm.

For more information on the tour or to purchase tickets please contact Jamie or Danelle at the Montgomery County Cooperative Extension (910-576-6011) or visit for the tour brochure.  This program is funded by the CFSA and Tobacco Trust Fund Commission.
