If you’re craving fresh, healthy food, skip the grocery store this weekend and head straight to the farm. The Davidson County Local Food Network is sponsoring a Farm Tour on Saturday, June 22, and Sunday, June 23, featuring a dozen farms that are usually closed to the public.

Highlights include Muddy Creek Lavender and Rocky Forge Farm, where visitors can learn about innovative farming practices and the importance of soil health. Michael Jones of Rocky Forge Farm emphasizes a natural approach to raising Wagyu Beef, avoiding chemical sprays. Meanwhile, Ginger Frembling at Muddy Creek offers advice on growing lavender and showcases their products. For details and to purchase a $10 farm pass, visit the Davidson County Local Food Network website and immerse yourself in local agriculture.
