Field to Feast Tours - February 2018



Ever wonder what’s growing in Yuma’s lush fields?  Our Field to Feast farm tours give you the answers – from the ground up.  Get down — and a little dirty — with a hands-on farming lesson! The highlight of these half-day tours led by a local grower is a visit to a field planted just for us at the University of Arizona research farm. There, you’ll get a quick food safety lesson from Yuma food safety experts, along with hairnets, rubber gloves, lettuce knives and a recipe card telling you what’s needed in the kitchen.

Don’t worry if you’re a novice — our experts are on hand to assist.  But be sure to wear comfortable, closed-toe shoes, this is a real working field and we don’t want you to harvest your tootsies! Better yet, once you’ve filled the chefs’ “order,” you can pick some fresh Yuma produce to take home. While you enjoy the rest of your tour through growing areas, culinary students from Arizona Western College will be hard at work turning fresh veggies from our field into a delicious and healthy lunch.  The exact itinerary for your tour depends on what’s up in the fields that day — our guides scout each trip to make sure you see agriculture in action. Stuffed with knowledge, you’ll tuck into the promised “feast” — and get a chance to meet culinary and agriculture students for their unique insights into the future of those fields.

That’s the real recipe:  A fresh and fun morning that’ll send you home with a new appreciation of food from farm to fork, fresh veggies you picked with your own hands — and a full stomach! Tickets include transportation and a healthy lunch. Tour departs the Yuma Visitor Information Center (201 N. 4th Avenue).
