About the Tour
This is the first tour to learn more about where our food is coming from. It is no coincidence we are going to Wood’s Market Garden during Strawberry Season. Between 4 and 5 we can pick strawberries for just $3.00 a pound – a special price for Muddy Boots members. Then, at 5, we will get a tour of the farm from farmer Jon Satz. The farm is impressive and has a rich history that Jon, Courtney and the boys are carrying on. The tour should last 45 – 60 minutes. Their impressive farmstand closes at 6pm, so come a little early if you want to shop.
At the end of the tour there will be Berries and Biscuits!
Yes! Brandon is a bit of a drive – a little under an hour. But, it is a beautiful drive over the Brandon Mountain Gap and you can build in some delicious stops along the way.
When Jon makes the Wednesday morning run to deliver our produce to Kingsbury Farm, a regular stop for him is Sandy’s Books and Bakery. While they close at 6, leave a little early to get to Brandon and you can stop midway for a latte or iced coffee and a pastry.
For dinner after the tour, you might consider Cafe Provence which is a sweet little restaurant in the heart of Brandon. It is a higher end restaurant, but if you have been wanting to go there, but haven’t found yourself in Brandon at dinnertime, this could be your big chance!
Take the long route home travelling north on 7 to 116 and pass through Bristol with a variety of restaurant options including the Bobcat Cafe and Mary’s at the Inn at Baldwin Creek.
Since this is the first time we are offering tours of our farms, we can’t gauge the interest. We know that many people will not be able to make it because they are just getting off of work at that time. But, we hope some folks will take the opportunity to learn more about where and HOW our food is grown. I promise you, your food will taste even better once you get an up close look at where is come from.
