In the hustle and bustle of day to day life, we may forget what it takes for food to get to our table and the efforts of those behind local farms.

Take advantage of this once-a-year opportunity to learn about local agriculture in Northampton County. There is no charge to go to any of these sites. Bring your family to any of these locations on Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13 between 1 and 5 p.m. on both days.

Dress casually and enjoy the day talking with local farmers and learning how your food is produced.  Look for the number on the sign that coincides with the number listed below.
