Tour Stops

This year's tour began at Ken Becks Farm to observe their livestock operation. The group traveled to Patriot Mart and the farmers market and fresh vegetables. Beautiful corn and soybean fields were observed at Tim Loflin and Ronald Thompson Farms. At Dennis Loflin Farm, the group observed his pig operation and best management practices they utilize. Vegetable production was viewed at Fine Farming. 

Lunch was served at The Classic Family Restaurant in Denton. After lunch, the group visited the Lexington Waste Water Treatment Plant to observe and learn about the ways they utilize best management practices within the city.
