If you came to Farm Tour 2019, you know we do things a little differently! We don't have a petting zoo or a potato cannon. Our tour is a peek at the amazing biodiversity found on a regenerative farm and an education in a farming philosophy that begins with the health of the land. And this year we have added a panel of natural health experts to present on a range of health topics from traditional nutrition to managing your blood pressure!
Admission is free, so pack a picnic and head to Falling Creek Farms on Sunday, April 24th!
Our schedule of events will include:
A hay ride with Farmer Emmet
Learn about the conservation efforts and the ways Falling Creek Farms' pasture management works with nature to encourage biodiversity, sequester carbon, and raise exceptional cattle
Meet Local Birds of Prey and their Human Handlers
Ben Hill, from the Georgia Falconry Association will discuss the relationship between bird and handler and share how their interactions with these birds helps to ensure that they continue to thrive in the wild.
