Bike or Run for Future Farmers
Jun 29, 2016 01:00AM
Cyclists are invited to ride all-new 10, 35, and 62-mile cycling courses through scenic farmland while runners and walkers can all enjoy a 5K course to support The Seed Farm on July 16. The fundraisers support the new farmer training and farm business incubator programs. Participants will enjoy post-ride/run lunch from 29 Cooks, beer from Samuel Adams Pennsylvania Brewery, ice cream from Bank Street Creamery, a farmers' market, kids' activities and music.
The eight-month intensive Seed Farm training program provides new farmers with valuable, practical experience and skills and the opportunity to launch sustainable farm businesses on-site in Emmaus. The Farm Incubator program allows new farmers that can demonstrate adequate skills and solid business plans to launch their own farms on the incubator portion of the Seed Farm and market products with access to land, equipment and infrastructure at reduced rates.
Registration includes breakfast, water and snacks at multiple farm stops along the route and admission to the Post-Ride/Run Celebration. Location: 5854 Vera Cruz Rd., Emmaus. For more information, call 610-391-9583, ext. 16.
