Farm and Winery Tour
RiverArts is sponsoring a Farm and Winery Tour for the weekend of July 25 and 26 as an extension of their July exhibit, “The Art of Wine.” Three wineries on the Chesapeake Wine Trail along with three farms involved in produce, dairy and flowers will be open for special tours, wine tasting and other farming experiences during the weekend. The goal of the tour is to further celebrate the beauty of the rural upper Eastern Shore area and to educate our non-farming friends and tourists about the sophistication, complexity and innovations that are part of modern farming today. Details here.
