US (KY): Lexington farm tour invites people to Follow the Food
A committee made up of Fayette County extension agents, community partners and local organizations planned the tour, which is based on one the Kenton County Extension office has hosted for the past few years.
“We wanted to highlight a lot of the little-known farms or urban agriculture sites that are around Lexington,” said Delia Scott, Fayette County horticulture agent. “The tour will give people an opportunity to see inside some of these places that aren’t usually open to the public.”
UKAg Horticulture Research Farm is part of Follow the Food tour
The self-guided farm tour kicks off officially at 9 a.m. at FoodChain, 501 W. Sixth St., with a free “sampling” breakfast. Participants will be able to taste a wide variety of foods provided by Good Foods Co-op, the Lexington Farmers Market and Bluegrass Farmers Market. Breakfast items will be available for purchase at the various sites along the route. Also during the breakfast, organizers will explain a bit more about the sites and distribute tour maps.
All agricultural sites on the tour are located within Fayette County, with four of them downtown. COLT trolleys will run about every 20 minutes from 9 a.m. to 12 noon, carrying participants to the four downtown sites from the High Street parking lot across from Rupp Arena, where parking is free.
