2011 Farm Tour

This past Saturday was our first Farm Tour as Clarion River Organics!  Even though it rained on and off that day about 30 people showed up, we were delighted.

We saw some horses, goats, pigs and lots of chickens.  At the Schmucker Family Farm we got to taste a delicious Asian Pear, Niagra Grapes, and Mulberries.  Two growers showed us produce fields and their ice houses, and River View Dairy gave us a goat cheese tour, yum!

Rippling Brook Farm was our last stop where there was a hay/wagon ride pulled by two massive and beautiful Clydesdales.

We ended the day with blue skies and a picnic, it turned out pretty nice!  Thanks to everyone who attended, we were happy to show you all around and for you to see how Clarion River Organics works.  It was rewarding and special to see the interest in what is going on up here.

  1. This reminds me of the old country of North Dakota where vegetable traders and farmers use horses to transport fresh produce. Kept them horses in t post line brace fields before being housed in the stables.
