WASHINGTON CO., N.Y. — The 2020 Fall Farm to Fiber Tour will take place Sat. and Sun. Oct. 3-4 and Oct. 10-11 from 10 to 4 each day. Admission is free; and will offer a unique and educational experience for the whole family. The Tour is also a great opportunity for people thinking of joining the area’s robust textile industry as a farmer or maker to meet other producers and learn about the fiber supply chain.
Over 30 farms, fiber studios, makers, and a mill are participating across an eight-county region including southwestern Vermont and New York’s Hudson Valley. A full list of Tour locations and a map is available at www.soadkfiberproducers.org.
Some of the open house events and demonstrations will take place outdoors. Dress for the weather. Masks and social distancing will be required. Visitors will be able to shop for fleeces, yarn or finished goods at all locations.
The event is coordinated by the Southern Adirondack Fiber Producers Cooperative. Sponsors are the Hudson Valley Textile Project and Taproot Magazine.
