Geneva County, AL - Each Saturday this summer you can hit the farm trail in Geneva County for what growers call “real food.”
Along Route 52, several small family owned farms are opening up so you can skip the middle man and buy directly from the farmer.
They offer everything from organic milk, fresh produce, canned and baked goods.
All of the farms on the trail use environmentally friendly and sustainable farming methods.
They say these are the freshest and highest quality goods you can get.
“It's a little bit different experience. You get to actually come to the farm. You get to see where your food is grown. It's even a little bit different than a farmer's market because you actually get to look at the produce in the field. It's fresh picked. It's more of an experience I guess,” said Paula Hennig of Waterberry Farms.
The trail is open each Saturday through July from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.
