It’s no secret that Asheville is a food lover’s paradise — but our delicious food scene wouldn’t exist without local farms. Get a behind-the-scenes look at how food is grown and cultivated during Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project’s (ASAP) annual Farm Tour this Saturday + Sunday, Sept. 23-24, from 12 to 5 p.m.

Twenty-two participating farms will be open for exploration through guided tours, demonstrations, and tastings. The farms are divided into five clusters, all within an hour drive of Asheville. Pro tip: Map out your routes for travel between farms so you don’t have a cow if your cell service goes out. You can also find curated tours, like the Kids’ Tour + the “Show Me How It’s Done” Tour on ASAP’s Instagram.

The $35 pass is good for both days and covers all the passengers in your vehicle. So pack the family in the car like peas in a pod because you can bet the farm you’ll have fun.
