Mark your calendar: the 7th annual Eastern Triangle Farm Tour is set for Sept. 15 and 16.
The public can visit 23 farms from Moncure to Louisburg between 1-5 p.m. each day. The event happens rain or shine.
A few of the participating farms include the SEEDS educational garden near downtown Durham, the goat cheese makers at Prodigal Farm in north Durham, the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle Farm in Raleigh and Turtle Mist Farm in Franklinton, which is home to sheep, cattle, turkeys, ducks, quail, peafowl, guineas and Berkshire hogs.
The farm tour costs $25 per car if you purchase tickets ahead of time. Tickets can be purchased online at www.carolinafarmstewards.org/etft/ or at Harmony Farms store in Raleigh or Whole Foods stores throughout the Triangle.
If you wait until the day of the event, tickets cost $30 for the tour or $10 per farm.
