Enjoy a memorable spring day in the county exploring four farms in Moore County. This year, on Saturday, April 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Sandhills Farm Tour showcases four farms in the Carthage and Cameron areas.

During your self-directed tour, you’ll look closely at the farms and learn about small-scale farming. See how regenerative agriculture restores old tobacco fields to fertile, self-sustaining farmland.

Experience the first flush of blooming native plants that attract native bees and butterflies. Then, take a tour of fruit and nut orchards, a mushroom forest, and herb gardens used to produce products like tea, herbal vinegar, dry goods, and bath products.

Sign up for a free cidery tour and learn about cider production. Watch a demonstration of fruit tree grafting. Be sure to check out the wind machine used for frost protection. Then grab a spot at the cider house and sample award-winning fresh and hard ciders and locally-made cheeses.

Farmers and beginning farmers will discuss starting and operating a small farm, including soil health, rotational grazing, fruit production, and controlled burns that restore the native flora and create a habitat for native species, like turtles, frogs, and otters.

For livestock fans, there are Kunekune and Berkshire pigs, Blackbelly sheep, and Katahdin goats, as well as Muscovy ducks and chickens who lay and some so small, they’ll peep.

The tour welcomes adult-guided children, too, and there are many educational and fun activities for them to enjoy.

The tour is free, but you will need to register to get a map and information about the farms on this year’s tour.
