OVER 350 VISITORS IN 8 HOURS!

Winterpast Farm participated for the first time in a big tour of farms (The Eastern Triangle Farm Tour) hosted by the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association. The tour ran from 1-5 both Saturday and Sunday.
Winterpast Farm donated their time and farm to raise money for the Association. Farmer Mary’s very good “friends of the farm” volunteered to staff the registration table, serve as gate openers and per roles those days.

Be sure to mark your calendars for September 20/21 for the 2014 Farm Tour!
