Farm-City Tours scheduled


Final plans have been made for the annual Chambers County Farm-City Tour, which is scheduled for Friday, Novembers 1. The tour includes stops at county industries and farms and is a unique was to illustrate the important link between the rural and urban communities, which is the goal behind the celebration of Farm-City Week.

The Chambers County Farm-City Committee and the Chambers County Development Authority have put together yet another interesting and exciting tour this year.

This year’s event begins with a breakfast at the Development Authority office in Lanett. The tour then heads to the Lanett Water Treatment Facility, followed by a visit to the Tallapoosa River Electric Cooperative substation on Hwy 50 in LaFayette.

The tour heads to The Oaks here in LaFayette for lunch next, and that’s followed by a tour of the property, which included the Jack-O-Lantern Lane pumpkin patch.

The final stop on the day will be the Daeil USA plant in Valley.

The tour will start at 8 am CST and conclude at 3 pm. There is no charge and breakfast and lunch are provided. Because there are just 20 spots available, sign-up is required. Reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Guests are encouraged to register as soon as possible by contacting Kimberly Fuller at the Chambers County Development Authority at 334-642-1460 or via email at kfuller@chambersida.com.

The Farm-City Tour is just one of many events that make up Farm-City Week. They started with the Farm-City Kickoff, which took place last week in the Valley. The Ag in the Classroom program takes place this Thursday for area second grade teachers.

Other event for Farm-City include Family Day on the Farm at the Slay Farm on Nov. 9, third grade farm tours at the Slay Farm and The Oaks Farm on Nov. 6-7 and the Farm-City Banquet on Nov. 19. Farm-City Week takes place Nov. 22-28 this year.
