The Agricultural Stewardship Association (A.S.A.) proposes to design and promote a self-guided cycling or driving tour of farms in the viewshed of the Saratoga National Battlefield. Highlights on the scenic tour will include farms protected through conservation easements and farms with farm stands or historic significance. Profiles of local farms will be included in the tour map, along with coupons that can be redeemed at local farm stands. The tour will be launched with a kick-off event. After the kick-off event, the map will be available through local farm stands, chambers of commerce, tourism kiosks, and local cultural attractions. The request will cover the cost of developing the text, map and brochure, the design and printing of the brochure and rack card, and organizing a kick-off event.
Partnership Grant Amount—$15,000
