Field Walk with your TapRoot Farmers

Take a walk with Patricia and Josh. Join us as we wander through the fields, tunnels. greenhouses, and see the animals at 1736 Church Street. Come back throughout the year and see hoe much the farm changes, season to season.

Guided tour starts at 12:00 PM. Wear appropriate clothing and footwear for walking through fields. We will walk rain or shine. Large wheeled stroller or backpacks are best. For our on farm food safety it's best to leave the four legged friends at home.   


My favorite way to eat chicken liver is by far in pate form. It's so delicious, a great spread for sandwiches or to dip carrots or crackers into. I like whole black peppercorns in the pate, they soften up and are so yummy.
