Farm Tour: Rolling Hills & Fry Family Farm

Have you ever wanted to see behind the scenes, and shake the hands that grow your food? Here’s your chance to knock elbows with some of dedicated farmers that bring food to your table every day. Gather the family, take a ride on an air conditioned bus, and enjoy a picnic lunch provided by the Co-op. If you have dietary needs beyond vegetarian or wheat free, please kindly bring your own picnic lunch. 

Dave at Rolling Hills provides the Co-op with fresh peaches from July to early October. Over the last 20+ years, Dave has grown many heritage peach varieties. There is something so beautiful and flavorful about a tree ripened peach. We love his peaches so much we even named a pie recipe after them.

Steve and Suzi Fry at Fry Family Farm produce melons, plant starts, winter squash and row crops for the Co-op, April through December. The Frys are also trailblazers for the local organic food movement, and are currently building a production facility that would open up processing and storage to other local farmers.

Sign up for one farm tour or both! They’ll be vastly different. This is a family friendly event. Each tour includes unsteady ground, lots of walking, hot sun, possible rain, and lots of fun! Please bring a water bottle, hat and your walking shoes, we’ll provide the rest.
