Have you heard of the term Farm-to-table? According to Wikipedia, “Farm-to-table (or farm-to-fork) refers to the stages of the production of food which includes harvesting, storage, processing, packaging, sales and consumption. Farm-to-table also refers to a movement concerned with producing food locally and delivering that food to local consumers.”
Do your children know where their food comes from? In a desire to teach my own, I have taken my children to a couple of local farms to take a tour. The purpose of a farm tour is to connect people with the farmers and land that grow their food. During a tour, you get a behind-the-scenes look at how a variety of food is grown and meet farmers who grow crops and raise livestock. In fact, the food your family eats may in fact come from one of Southern California’s family farms.
So take a peak at this list of local farms in our area and schedule a tour today!
