Four area farms team up for summer passport program

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — You’ve probably heard of gallery crawls and bar crawls, but this summer there’s a new crawl happening in the Charlotte area. Four area farms have teamed up for the Charlotte Area Farm Crawl summer passport program.

Visit each farm at your leisure, pick up a free passport at the first location and get it stamped at each farm by Aug. 31.

Turn in your stamped passport at the last farm you visit to be eligible to win one of four prize packages from the farms. Each basket will be full of farm goodies, with a value of $60 each.
