If you have an organic farm, you can skip this. Everyone else, if you want an interesting perspective shift, take a tour at Earthbound Farms’ Farm Stand in Carmel Valley, California.
It’s a chance to see your food from the point of earthly production. You get a tour of the fields, including the ability to fill a basket with whatever you want to pick.
Being in the clear air, amid the literal cornucopia of vegetables and herbs—it’s a good way to reconnect with some fundamental things.
Although the Farm Stand is open daily, farm tours only happen on a handful of Saturdays each year. On the Farm Stand’s calendar of events, look for the days/times with either a Farm Walk or Chef’s Walk.
