The County’s annual Farm Tour & Harvest Sale celebrates its 28th anniversary with a variety of agricultural operations open to the public on July 22 and July 23 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Seventeen farms will participate in the event.
Many people do not realize that about one-third of the County’s land is agricultural. Most 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.
