The annual Piedmont Farm Tour is this weekend. It's a great opportunity to check out local farms and dairies.

Thanks for posting the reminder - I would have totally missed going!

I guess I'm going to have a busy weekend!

edit - Here's a brochure/map for the tour:

It's $25/car paid for in advance, $30 day of the tour.

You can pay online at:

I used to love going on farm tours back in Virginia!

There's also the 144th anniversary of the largest civil war surrender at Bennett Place in Durham this weekend. It's a free event with living history and tours.

"This commemorative event marks the largest surrender of the American Civil War, which helped reunify the U.S."

I went on the Farm Tour last year and had a blast, so much so that I started my own garden this year.

As luck would have it, there is an article about the significance of Bennett Place in today's N&O-Durham edition. Here's a link:
