The Louisiana Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) Program
is hosting a Sustainable Agriculture Farm Tour
on April 19 to serve as an outreach activity for local sustainable farmers to meet citizens of the area. This will be a one-day tour, beginning at 9 a.m. and ending at 3 p.m. A map, with details of each of the five farms participating, will be provided so that participants can drive their own vehicles and take the tour at their leisure.
Krishna Paudel, a Louisiana State University agricultural economics and agribusiness professor, is bringing a group of LSU Gamma Sigma Delta members to this farm tour. The LSU group is limited to 15 members, so anyone wanting to participate is asked to contact Paudel
Farms participating in the tour include: Luckett Farm in Pride, Louisiana Pride and Feliciana's Best Creamery, both in Slaughter and Port Hudson Organics in Zachary. The fifth and final stop on the tour will be Oakland Plantation in Gurley where Dinner in the Field
will be held. Dinner in the Field begins with a cocktail hour at 4 p.m. featuring live music, cocktails, wine and hors d'oeuvres. A six-course dinner begins at 5 p.m. featuring local foods. Information on costs of the cocktail hour and dinner, including cost, is available on Eventbrite
SARE is a professional development program sponsored by LSU AgCenter and the Southern University Agricultural Research and Extension Center.
