Buy Fresh Buy Local Farm Tour: Pittsburgh area farm tour this Saturday!

Attention Pittsburgh!

This Saturday, pack up a car with hungry people and go exploring! On Saturday, July 24 2010 between 10 AM and 6 PM, Western Pennsylvania farmers will be opening their doors to visitors who are interested in learning more about some of the best food produced in this area. Whether you're looking for some local cheeses, want to see pastures of grass-fed beef, see how some of the world's best lamb is raised in our backyard, or just bike to an urban farm and nursey in the city, there should be something for everyone. A $10 admission per car is payable to the first farm you visit, which gives you access to every other farm on the tour. All proceeds go to support The Pennsylvania Association for Sustainable Agriculture (PASA).

Tam and I will be starting at Kretchmann Farm (who have been filling our CSA crates for the last three years) and taking it from there!

For more information contact PASA at (412) 697-0411.
