Join Slow Food Boston and the Northeast Organic Farming Association, Massachusetts Chapter (NOFA/Mass) in welcoming the bounty of autumn with our North Shore Tour de Farms.

Together we will bicycle a 16 mile loop across bucolic country roads, visit five diverse farms, including several vegetable farms, a pastured poultry farm, a historic dairy and cheese farm, and a beef cattle farm. Lunch will be offered picnic-style atop a lush pasture.

Tour de Farms riders will be specially welcomed onto each farm, hearing directly from the owners and operators about the history of their farms and their farm products. All of the farms we visit are exemplars of sustainable agriculture that produce healthful, fair, and ecologically appropriate foods for their communities.
