Deadline Nears for Farm Tour Participants

Loudoun farmers are invited to apply to participate in the 2017 Fall Farm Tour. Farms will be promoted by Loudoun Economic Development through printed brochures, newspaper ads and web content that encourages the public to visit participating businesses the third weekend in October.

The deadline for applications is 5 p.m. Aug. 18. Applications can be found at:biz.loudoun.gov/FarmTourApp.

The Fall Farm Tour will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 21- 22. It is intended to promote awareness of Loudoun County’s farms, rural businesses and agricultural community. The weekend-long event is also used as a teaching opportunity to inform consumers about Loudoun-grown products.

All types of rural businesses are invited to apply. Past Fall Farm Tours have encouraged the public to visit farms and pick their own produce; taste craft beverages and locally produced food; ride or feed farm animals, and enjoy tours, shopping, hay rides and demonstrations.
