Registration Opens June 20th:


Support Food Security

This year, in lieu of a registration fee, we are asking you to consider a donation to the 2020 Virtual Connecticut Tour des Farms Program.

In response to the impact on so many Connecticut families, CT RC&D is donating the cost of staff time to organize this signature recreational event for your summer fun and discovery of Connecticut's farms.

100% of your donation directly supports local farmers and our communities who need it most. Through University of Connecticut Extension's "Operation Community Impact", local produce, food products, and dairy will be distributed to local and regional soup kitchens.

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.

Our local food economy relies on your contribution. Thank you for your donations to this cause.
