People around the country understand that crops and other food come from farms, but do you know what goes into running one?
According to Mike Ellis of the Independent Mail, people from many parts of the country visit Upstate farms every year in South Carolina. While visiting, they begin to understand tasks that local farmers accomplish in order to keep the animals safe and produce the food we eat.
According to Ellis, Gloria Williams runs Lucky Acres Farm in Townville, and she moved to the area with her husband from New York. Together, they have raised several animals for the past 14 years.
But, there is a local association that allows people to tour all the local farms. The Carolina Farm Stewardship Association’s Upstate Farm Tour allows people to understand what farm living is really like.
The CFSA has several tours and workshops that teach people all about sustainable and organic farming. While on the tour, you can not only learn about sustainable farming. You can also partake in great tasting food that is grown locally. You’ll learn what it takes to grow the food and why organically-grown food can be healthier for you in several ways.
The tour includes 22 farms, and every farm showcases different aspects of farm life including animals, crops and meats.
