This Sunday, July 27 will be the second day of the Fairbanks Tour of Farms, a community-wide open house of the Fairbanks farming community. 8 local farms will be welcoming visitors to stop by during varying timeframes throughout the day. Explore great farms in the Fairbanks area with this self-guided tour. Pick up a 'passport' at the first farm you visit, and get it stamped along the way. Leave it at the last farm on your journey or mail it in to FEDC, 330 Wendell St., Suite E, Fairbanks, AK, 99701. Each passport that is either mailed or collected at the farms will be entered to win door prizes from local retailers. Each stamp on a passport will qualify for one entry into the drawings, thus the more farms you visit the more times you'll be entered to win!

Please note that this year's Tour of Farms will be taking place on TWO days, with 6 farms welcoming visitors on July 20, and eight different farms welcoming visitors on July 27. For a larger map, check the July 20 and July 27 Comics section in the News-Miner. For more information, call the FEDC office, 452-2185.
