2017 Tour des Farms Bicycle Ride

Your Support Will Go a Long Way!

This ride is designed to raise awareness and suppoEastern CT RC&D Tour des Farmsrt for the cause of Connecticut’s agricultural lands. The Tours have become well established as enjoyable family activities with a focus on the uniqueness of Connecticut’s communities. The rides have also raised funds for the Working Lands Alliance, the Connecticut Farmland Trust and for the RC&D’s agricultural viability programs. This year's proceeds will support the CT Farm Energy Program and AG Job Jump Start. Both of these programs are supporting farmers and keeping our farms producing food for generations to come.

This year we are looking forward to hosting several hundred biking enthusiasts at the Connecticut Tour des Farms ride on October 21, 2017. The ride will begin at Meadowridge Farm in Litchfield, CT.

Please help support programs that provide direct benefits to Connecticut’s farms by becoming a Tour des Farms sponsor. Your support, at one of our participation levels, will go a long way to showing your commitment to Connecticut’s vital farms and their contribution to our quality of life and our economy. The levels of sponsorship are detailed below. Because of the need to prepare t-shirts and other promotional materials, including our press releases and feature stories for television/radio/newspaper outlets, the window of opportunity for sponsorship of this year’s ride will be open until September 22, 2017.
