About The 2010 Tour des Farms
The 2010 Tour des Farms of Southern Connecticut was a roaring success, thanks to all the great riders, farmers, musicians and volunteers who made it happen!
A healthy pack of 140 riders made their way through the rolling hills of our southern Connecticut farmland. The fantastic weather that we special-ordered was delivered right on time, the route designed by Aaron Goode was scenic and shady, the signs by Lexy were ubiquitous and colorful, the farmers were delighted by all the visitors, and the musicians added a bit of magic to the event. All in all it was a great day!
Here are some photos of the day that Barb and Bob shared on Flickr:
The day begins at Miller Complex in Hamden.
Riders take a break at Bishop Farms in Cheshire.
Mill River CSA in North Haven was the first stop.
Boulder Knoll CSA in Cheshire handed out baby veggies as snacks. Nice!
Frank Critelli plays organic music at Boulder Knoll Farm.
Kate Callahan performs at Norton Brothers Fruit Farm Market. What a peach!
The four "farm artists" came together for an outstanding showcase at the end of the day: John Ciambriello, Brian Dolzani, Frank Critelli and Kate Callahan.
Caravan of Thieves ended the concert in their traditional spectacular fashion.
