We started the Crop Hop three years ago as a way to bring our community together to celebrate family farmers and farm advocates. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate here in the North Carolina Piedmont: delicious food, talented local musicians, and a boot-stompin’ square dance. Sounds about right! I hope you know at least a few of the farmers or farms where your food comes from, if only for a sense of personal connection. If you’re like me, you also like knowing that you’re supporting a local, sustainable, or organic business.
Join RAFI for our 3rd Annual Crop Hop on Sunday, September 13, 2015 at The Pittsboro Roadhouse in downtown Pittsboro, NC.100% of the proceeds from the event will benefit RAFI’s work on behalf of family farmers.
To submit a donation for inclusion in the Crop Hop’s fundraising event, or to inquire about sponsorship opportunities or group rates, please contact Edna Rodriguez via email at [email protected]
“Crop Hop was a fresh approach to the square dance. Incredibly fun while enjoying the company of young farmers, old farmers, our local community, and getting to know RAFI, an international organization that we are proud to have in Chatham County.”
