Real Local RVA is proud to host it’s 3rd Annual Farm Tour. This year's tour will feature four urban farms located in the city of Richmond, VA with the goal to introduce consumers to urban agriculture farmers right in their own neighborhoods, growing food with four very different missions at the heart of their work. 

Featured farms include:

The event will begin at 12:30 p.m. at the Lakeside Farmers' Market Pavilion, where guests will board tour buses and travel to the above farms. Each farm stop will feature "tastes of local" where something from the farm is incorporated into a snack for the guests. Tour buses will arrive back to the Lakeside Pavilion around 5:30 p.m. for the final tour of Lakeside's Tiny Acre. After the tour of Lakeside, guests are invited to stay for a post-tour celebration under the Farmers' Market Pavilion. We'll celebrate the day with delicious food and drink and music from The Mills Family Band.

It will be a true celebration of local food in Richmond and we hope you will join us for this special event! Many thanks to NOPE for making this a waste free event.
