Northern Kentucky is mostly considered a part of the Greater Cincinnati area. Many residents of Kenton County are unaware of how much of the county remains farm land in the twenty-first century. The third annual Kenton County Farm Harvest Tour, on September 21, 2013, will give visitors an opportunity to learn about the farming that still goes on in the county. Once again, farmers in Kenton County will welcome visitors, give tours, and share the bounty from their farms.
Visit www.kentoncountyextension.org to download a digital tour map or pick one up at your first stop. This year’s stops are the Independence Farmer’s Market, Kenton County Extension Outdoor Education Center, Bluegrass Shrimp Farm, Redman’s Farm Winery, Poverty Hollow Farm, Funke’s Hickory Ridge Farm, Bright Star Acres, Lockhart Farm at Halt-N-Salut Equestrian Center, Triple J Farms, Rising Phoenix Farm, Atwood Hill Winery, The Pumpkin Patch, and Ed-Mar Dairy. Visitors will be able to buy produce, shrimp, local raised meat, and many other farm products. The two Kenton County wineries will be offering tastes of their wines and the opportunity to learn about the grapes grown in the county.
Touring rural Kenton County would be a great way to spend a September Saturday. Hope to see you there.This entry was posted in Festivals by admin
