Farm Tour, Aug 2013 Photos

On August 24, as part of Augustine's summer fundraising program, Just Living hosted a tour to two farms, where the farmers practice ethical farming.  The farms are separate operations, but are farmed by two generations of the same family.  We started with Benjamin Pries, and after lunch visited the farm of Albert and Pam Peters-Pries.  These are just a few pictures of the event, which was enjoyed by all who participated.
