tour de farm

Posted: July 16 2012

Tour de Farm is an educational bicycle tour celebrating the beauty and productivity of the farmland that forms the backdrop for Saratoga National Historic Park. These working landscapes, largely undeveloped since the Revolutionary War, provide important historical context for visitors to the Park as well as a bounty of fresh food, environmental benefits, and economic and recreational opportunities for the region. The Tour highlights the rich agricultural lands, historic sites, and beautiful open spaces that have been permanently protected by Agricultural Stewardship Association (ASA), Saratoga P.L.A.N., the Open Space Institute (OSI), working in partnership with local governments in the Saratoga Battlefield region.
