See the county as you never have before on this self-guided driving tour of 15 farms/farm operations located around Campbell County. Guests can explore vineyards, equestrian centers, beef cattle operations, horticultural operations, and see antique farm equipment. They will also get a glimpse of the importance of preserving the county’s prime farmland. Farmers will be available to share their story and experience as well as answer any questions. Many of the stops will have items such as produce, wine, honey, crafts, and other farm products for sale, so don’t forget to bring a cooler and cash.
