Essex Farm Tour
September 3, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm$5 – $10
Mark will once again lead an introspective and adventurous tour through Essex Farm’s vegetable fields, pasture, and livestock areas. Afterward, take an optional self-guided hike along the farm roads to some of the farm’s more remote areas. The Essex Farm Tour begins at 11 a.m. sharp in front of the Farm Store and takes place rain or shine. Participants should bring all-weather clothing and sturdy rubber boots and expect a long walk over rough terrain. EV chargers are available!
There is a suggested donation for this event: $5 for kids, $10 for adults, and free for Essex Farm CSA members.
This event is part of the 2022 Open Farm Weekend, which runs from September 2-5 and features farms and small businesses along the Boquet Valley Cuisine Trail. All events are open to the public, see a full list of Open Farm Weekend events here.
About Essex Farm
Essex Farm is a 1,500 acre sustainable, diversified farm in the Champlain Valley of Upstate New York founded and farmed by Mark and Kristen Kimball. “We offer a full diet, year round CSA Membership with weekly on farm pick up and direct door-to-door delivery to New York City, Albany and the Tri-Lakes Area. Our mission is to produce an abundance of high quality products for our CSA members while fostering the health and resiliency of the farm, the farmers, the members, and the community. Our desire is to build an agro-ecosystem that is sustainable economically, environmentally, and socially. We work to make a farm that is better tomorrow than it is today.” You can read more about life on Essex Farm in Kirsten’s two books, The Dirty Life and Good Husbandry.
