Salmo Tour de Farm Stand

July 14 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm

Join us for a Sunday morning bike tour of the farm stands of beautiful Salmo, BC!

Self-serve farm stands are surging in popularity, and the village of Salmo is leading the way when it comes to farm stand culture in the Kootenays. Within an easy bike ride of the village centre, there are three farm stands that offer fresh produce, fruit, cheese, meat, wool, soap, flowers, and value-added products. Shopping at farm stands is a great way to get the freshest farm products possible, all the while supporting your local producers and connecting with the farms that feed you.

The event will include a farm tour and farm stand visit at each stop. Starting with the fields and greenhouses at Salix and Sedge Farm, we’ll then head over to see the market gardens at Clutch Farm, stop for a short picnic lunch, and wrap up with a visit to Forrest Farm Sheep and Goat Cheese Creamery. Participants will get to learn how the farms produce their goods, and stock up on groceries along the way.

This 18 km round-trip is timed so that participants can bike between the farms, but you are welcome to join no matter how you get between the locations. Feel free to drive, e-bike, roller-blade, run, or get there however works for you!  Children and families are more than welcome if they are able to safely ride on the road. This bike route avoids highway riding but does involve a few highway crossings.
