Farm Crawl’s rural tour grows in popularity – The Hamilton Spectator
“The idea is we want people to understand where their food comes from and what it’s like to live and work on a farm,” said Kevin Beagle, one of the founders — and owner of Weir’s Lane Lavender and Apiary farm.
“It gives people a taste of rural living,” he added.”
Hamilton Farm crawlers head back to a Simpler Thyme in Flamborough – The Flamborough Review
“Hamilton’s fifth annual Farm Crawl was held last weekend and featured some local farms.
The crawl was open to people to take tours of participating farms to learn what each farm does and to meet the farmers who grow their food.
Flamborough Review Reporter Julia Lovett went to Simpler Thyme Organic Farm to check out what they had to offer.”
