Farm Tour and Slow Food Potluck
Sanders Ridge Farm
1501 Nebo Road, Boonville, NC

Come enjoy a day in the country at Sanders Ridge, a 350 acre farm consisting of old growth forest, marshlands, creeks, lakes, and open fields. Explore 159 years of local history with 5th generation farmer Neil Sanders and organic grower/CSA manager Cindy Hinshaw. Sample and take home farm fresh produce, watch birds, take a long walk, rub an old horse’s soft nose, or just sit and relax.

The “official” farm visit hours run from 10:00 – 2:00 Saturday June 30; Slow Food is sponsoring a covered dish potluck from 11:30 – 1:00. Located in the Yadkin County community of Boonville, NC, Sanders Ridge is 30 minutes west of Winston-Salem, and lies within the boundary of the Yadkin Valley Wine Appellation. (See their web site for Directions.)

Sanders Ridge: Where tree hugging, fern fondling, wine sipping, and cat napping are encouraged!
