WAYNE COUNTY, PA — The Wayne County Farm Tour is set for Saturday, September 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Participants will travel via mini-coach and visit three area farms, each unique in its management and products. You can bring a cooler; there will be meats, vegetables, milk, eggs, cheese, cider donuts and pies available for purchase.

The farms will be The Bison Farm (buffalo meat and heritage Chianina cattle), Gross Family Dairy (raw milk dairy with a Guernsey herd) and Stevens Vegetable Farm. Lunch will be a home-cooked meal prepared by and served at Journey’s End Farm, a teaching farm where people come to learn about farming, animals and the environment. During the trip, some of the challenges and hardships faced by farmers today and how they meet the demand for high quality food products will be discussed.
