Information

Farmers learn best from other farmers, and aspiring farmers learn best from hearing how successful farmers in the region are running their farms. Farm Tours form the core of the WNC CRAFT training program.

Tours will:

  • occur once a month from April – August 2021 (5 tours) & be a mix of in person and virtual
  • provide an overview of the farming operation, as well as a focused look at a topic of that farmer’s choosing;
  • at this time, we will not be hosting potlucks, but will notify you about food and beverage protocol for each specific tour.

WNC CRAFT is a membership program, and its fees cover a whole year of learning and networking opportunities. More details will be provided on each tour upon joining CRAFT.
