As a program, Tour des Farms aims to move around Connecticut, ensuring diverse regional promotion. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, CT RC&D will host a summer-long statewide Tour des Farms event for riders to enjoy at their own pace and schedule. The event includes eight regional routes, each featuring 6-10 farms throughout the state. That’s over 75 farms getting direct support from their communities!
Riders will also receive a few perks for participating! Riders who complete their Tour des Farms passports and submit them to CT RC&D will be entered to win a CT specialty food basket generously donated by Bishop’s Orchards of Guilford, CT, one of the farm stops on a Tour des Farms route.
With food insecurity on the rise and farmer sales channels drying up, this donation effort allows everyone to help our local farmers thrive while keeping our communities fed with healthy, fresh food.
The Connecticut Tour des Farms Program is an annual bike ride designed to benefit and promote local farms, rural businesses, and the Connecticut community.
