The Loudoun County Department of Economic Development has started planning for the 2011 Fall Farm Color Tour scheduled for Saturday, October 15, and Sunday, October 16, from 10:00 a.m. to  4:00 p.m.

The Fall Farm Color Tour is a free, self-guided tour that is designed to showcase local, active farms in the county. The goal of the tour is to promote Loudoun County’s farms by sponsoring a weekend tourism event to increase awareness and educate the public about agriculture and the rural economy in Loudoun. It is also an attempt to inform consumers of what products are grown and are available locally.

Farmers who are interested in participating are encouraged to contact Coco Lyons, Marketing Coordinator with the Loudoun County Department of Economic Development, at 703-737-8322 or by e-mail atCoco.Lyons@loudoun.gov to request an application and a copy of the tour policies and guidelines.
