27th Annual Montgomery County Farm Tour and Harvest Sale
Montgomery County celebrates its agricultural heritage by promoting local farms, and inviting residents to indulge in seasonally fresh food during the 27th Annual Farm Tour and Harvest as well as throughout the entire growing season.
Most people do not realize that agricultural activities occupy about one-third of the County’s land area. The majority of the farms in the County are family-run operations, which employ more than 10,000 residents. The County has 540 farms in Montgomery County, many of which produce crops that help feed residents.
The Annual Farm Tour and Harvest Sale helps the County promote its farms by making residents aware of the diverse agricultural industry and products that are locally available during the growing season. The Farm Tour provides a way to link County residents to farming operations.
The annual event will take place July 23 and 24. For more information on participating farms and operational hours for the farms visit the website at www.montgomerycountymd.gov/farmtour.
