ET Celebrates Local with Farm Tour and Cookout

September 21, 2017 8:55am

On Saturday September 30th our friends at Ellwood Thompson’s are putting on their 2nd annual Farm Tour and Cookout from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Load up your car with friends and family and meet the ET folks at Broadfork Farm. From there tour participants will board a shuttle and visit four unique local farms. The first stop will be at Tricycle Urban Ag, an urban non-profit organization. The second stop will be Shalom Farms, a sustainable farm focused on education and community. The third stop will be Casselmonte Farm, a farm focused on producing safe, nutritious, great-tasting food in a sustainable organic system. The final stop will be back on Broadfork Farm, a thriving Certified Naturally Grown produce farm.

After the tour ends, the locally themed cookout kicks off featuring locally made and sourced food from Virginia. There will be craft cocktails by Belle Isle Craft Spirits, craft beer by Hardywood Park Craft Brewery, live music by 3rd Wave as well, so be sure to bring a lawn chair or a blanket.

The event will be 100% waste free courtesy of NOPE Composting. Tickets are $25/head for the tour only; $50/head for the cookout only; and $65/head for the tour and cookout.

I was the Outdoors Columnist at the Times-Dispatch from 2007 to 2013, writing twice a week about mountain biking, fishing, hunting, paddling and much more. I live a 1/4 mile from the James River, close enough to see bald eagles soaring over my house on their way to find a meal. Pretty cool, eh?
