How many stops are included?
It varies somewhat with the season, but on average, the Thursday tour has 1-3 stops, while the Sunday tour has 2-4.
What's included in the "Learning about Organic Farming" aspect? Do tour members get to get their hands dirty?
Tour riders interact with farmers and staff, and may meet Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) members picking up their week's share of the farm's harvest.
Farmers are glad to speak directly to the tour riders about their personal farming history, manual Organic farming techniques and methods, and the philosophy and logistics of CSA, as well as to answer tour members’ questions.
Tour riders are encouraged to check out the fields, outbuildings, and farm animals.
