The annual Meet Your Farmer Tour has been scheduled for Saturday, June 24, from 9am to 1pm. Take an opportunity to get on-farm tours of some of your favorite local farmers! Berea Farmers Market is one stop on the tour as well as BFM vendor, Cedar Cliff Farms. We will have special programs, give-aways, entertainment and free lunch for the kids.
Ron and Linda Sheldon
Extensive gardeners in their previous home in Connecticut, it wasn’t until their move south in 2015 that they established “Wanna Be Farmin” in Jackson County. Kentucky offered a more relaxed and affordable life style but with 3 acres of produce, a hydroponic green house, a high tunnel for winter production, chickens, ducks and bees, they can hardly call their daily lives “relaxed”. Still, they are happy to now be farming full time selling produce in farmers markets throughout the area.
The tour will also include Four Sisters Farm, the community garden at Glades Christian Church, the Madison County Farmers’ Market and the Downtown Richmond Farmers’ Market. This a great way to spend a day meeting the people who grow your food!
