I am thrilled to be joining Know a California Farmer‘s 2012 Farm Fresh Tour of San Luis Obispo County agriculture! The tour takes place this Thursday and Friday, August 16-17. I will travel with food and family bloggers as they “get to know the farmers that grow the freshest, most abundant food supply in the world.”

The event will give these well-known bloggers a “behind-the-scenes look into the farm-to-fork process.” We will visit farms in North and South County, including Cal Poly alumna, Alexis Negranti, at Negranti Dairy and Creamery (home of the sheep milk ice cream)!

We will also be stopping at Halter Ranch Vineyard, Pasolivo, Thomas Hill OrganicsPismo Oceano Vegetable Exchange and Talley Farms and Vineyards. Even as a fourth-year Agricultural Communications major living on the Central Coast, I have not been to any of these places yet! This is going to be fun!

Bloggers attending the tour include Nicole Hanmaker, food blogger from Fresno, Philip Cross, food blogger from Fresno and Nicole’s fiancé, Michelle Stern, food/education blogger in the Bay area  and Sean Timberlake and DPaul Brown, food bloggers from San Francisco. I look forward to meeting these bloggers and experiencing Central Coast agriculture with them.

Follow along through this blog, Facebook and #FarmFreshTour.
