And it's not just yan farms that are taking part. Or even just farms. Among this year's stops are a blueberry farm (Robert's Blueberry Farm in Clermont); a dairy (Glo-Crest, also in Clermont, which supplies fresh milk for ice cream made at Mountain Fresh Creamery nearby and which will offer tours of its milk-harvesting parlor), a honey maker (Blue Ridge Honey Company in Lakewood) and the new Valley Farm at Tocca Falls College that's part of a major it offers in Sustainable Community Development).
Each of the featured farms is open from 1 p.m. - 6 p.m. either on Saturday or Sunday. Similarly, two meal stops are open each day, and you must reserve ahead (check the web site for additional information). Thinking of making a whole weekend of it in the breathtaking north Georgia countryside? Two bed-and-breakfasts — Glen-Ella Spring and Sylvan Fall Mill — are participating, but also require reservations.
In fact, with so many stops spread out over two days and lots of terrain, advance planning is a good idea for everyone. Tour organizers suggest you try hitting three to four farms each day. And that you bring along coolers to tote home fresh produce and the like straight off the farm.
If it even makes it home, mmmm…..
