Virtual Farm Tours

Southern SAWG has developed a series of videos, available on DVD, titled Natural Farming Systems in the South. This series began through a partnership with the USDA's Risk Management Agency. Each of these high-quality videos takes the viewer to one farm, provides an understanding of the whole farming system from planning through production and marketing, and gives a closer look at unique components. The series features small-scale organic vegetable and flower farms, pasture-based poultry, dairy and beef operations.

We also offer an interactive CD-ROM featuring a North Carolina farmer and educator, Alex Hitt of Peregrine Farms. Alex leads you through a photo-laden tour of thirteen farming topics. The topics range from soil-building through marketing and record-keeping and grounded in how the information is implemented on his vegetable and cut-flower farm.
