FARMSTOCK 2011...Visit Your Local Farmers

When it comes to food, it is a natural resource we just cannot live without, yet so many of us really have no clue where our food comes from, nor the work involved in getting it onto our plates when it comes to dinner time. The Sullivan County Farm Network, founded in March 2010 hopes to change that reality, is working diligently with those who produce food here in Sullivan County, and those who consume it, the end line users. To that end, they have started a very interesting program called Farmstock, a chance for people to actually visit a working farm, take a tour, get a first hand look at where our food comes from, and meet some of the people who grow it!

So, if you live in Sullivan County, or are visiting Sullivan County, are looking for a wonderful weekend day trip, the Farmstock Experience is one HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Pack up the picnic basket, load the family into the car, and make a day out of visiting the farm. There are different farms to visit every weekend of the summer
, with each one a different and unique experience for one and all. Admission to the farms is just $6 for adults, and $4 for children, you cannot ask for a better family bargain, and visiting a farm is truly a Kodak Moment for you and your family.
