The event will be Saturday, July 14.  We will be hosting farm tours from 10am - 4pm and would love to see you there. In order to have more tours and space for guests, we will have two TC Farm locations participating in this year's tour! 

We will have samples, t-shirts and hats for sale at all locations. See below for details. 

Check out the Tour Guide

As we get closer, the local co-ops sponsoring the farm tour will post their guide for the day. You might find that there are other farms you are also interested in visiting. There are some other great farms participating. We really hope you check out the guide.

TC Farm Site 2

Ian and Elizabeth joined the TC Farm team in 2014. They have focused mostly on chickens and were a godsend for Betsy and I when they took over the bulk of our eggs and chicken... Truly, they have made TC Farm possible.

On their farm, you will find free ranging TC Farm laying hens and broilers.  They also raise a small number of pigs for their own use and have a great guardian dog too! 

Of all the farms, they have the most cool equipment to see... lots of bins, small tractors and innovative chicken housing.
