Glascock’s Produce at Quail Hollow Farm hopes to showcase their farm innovations with a free farm tour on March 31.
After winning the 2011 Soil Conservation Award for the state of West Virginia, they want to show off their equipment and techniques to show customers what they do.
“We want to start the season off on a good note,” said Laura Glascock, owner. “It’s a great day to be a farmer. I can’t wait to show kids where their food comes from.”
Events at the tour include a look at the herb garden, greenhouse and children’s activities, conservation practices, plastic mulch demonstrations, water wheel planting, high tunnel construction and planting, plus low-tunnel corn planting.
A possible follow-up tour may happen in summer to show the crops planted later in this season.
Tours will go on regardless of weather, with tents in place to guard against rain, said Glascock.
