This year's tour puts the spotlight on four farms in Knox County, each of which highlights local foods and products as well as conservation projects and activities. We will visit Pleasantville Farm in Warren, a family-run dairy farm; Glendarragh Lavender Farm in Appleton, Maine’s only lavender farm; Sweet Season Farm in Washington, a pick-your-own berry farm with a farm store and café where we will have lunch; and Eco-Apple Certified Hope Orchards in Hope, which features apples, pears, and fresh-pressed cider.
Between stops, relax and take in the breathtaking landscapes of Knox County from the comfort of a climate-controlled luxury coach. Knox-Lincoln SWCD staff Hildy Ellis and Rebecca Jacobs will provide insights and answer questions about conservation and agricultural activities during the drive past local farms, lakes, mountains and blueberry fields during the height of fall foliage season.
Pre-registration is required and seats fill up quickly. Cost of the tour is $30 per person and includes all food and travel from the District office at 893 West St (Route 90) in Rockport. The bus will depart at 8:15 a.m. and return around 4 p.m.
