The South Jersey Resource Conservation and Development Council (SJRCD) and the Burlington County Board of Chosen Freeholders will sponsor the ninth annual South Jersey Tour des Farms at 8 a.m., September 12, beginning at the Jack Allen Memorial Early Country Living Museum, in Vincentown.
This annual event highlights the agricultural industry and preserved farmland efforts in South Jersey. Riders can choose a 15-mile, 29-mile or 54-mile ride, visiting farm stands along the route and purchasing fresh fruits, vegetables and other goods, which are shipped to the finish line. Each rider receives five Farm Bucks, good for purchases at any participating route farms on the day of the event, and a T-shirt. Light refreshments and water will be served at the start and finish of the race.
The SJRCD promotes the wise use and conservation of natural and community resources to support the environmental and economic well-being of South Jersey.
