There is a $20 entrance fee for cars and motorcycles and the event is FREE for spectators. All proceeds go towards a new EMS building.
A beloved summer highlight, the Easton Farm Tour, hosted by Citizens for Easton (CFE), kicks off on Saturday, August 12, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This highly anticipated event promises a day of fun-filled activities, educational opportunities, and a chance to explore both the area’s rich agricultural heritage and historic sites.
The first stop on the farm tour will be at Samuel Staples Elementary School Pavilion. A map of farms and the day’s events will be distributed. Map holders will receive discounts and samples at the participating farms.
At the pavilion, Citizens for Easton (CFE) volunteers will host community projects, offer membership information, and as always, there will be a free drawing for prizes generously donated by local farms, artists, and businesses. The Easton Garden Club will also be teaching gardeners-to-be some tricks of the trade. State certified Master Composters will be available to answer questions about backyard composting and vermicomposting (composting with worms) for interested attendees.
Children and families can also enjoy old time fun and games provided by the Easton Community Center staff from 10:00am to noon, promising delightful entertainment for the young ones before setting out to visit participating farms.
The Self-Guided Farm Tour, running from 10:00am to 2:00pm, will give visitors a chance to explore some of Easton’s finest farms and orchards and to meet our farmers and several distinguished Easton historians.
