Join RAFI’s staff for a tour at Vollmer Farm in Bunn, NC on October 30th from 9 am to 11 am. The event is free, but attendees must RSVP by emailing Jean at jean@rafiusa.org. Russ Vollmer is a full-time farmer from a long lineage of tobacco farmers in Franklin County. He uses his farm to educate school groups on agriculture and rural life. Russ hopes to expand the farm’s existing fall educational activities and to add new spring tours for school groups. Thanks to a grant from the Agricultural Reinvestment Fund, he is currently expanding his on-farm education infrastructure. The grant program is supported by the NC Tobacco Trust Fund Commission.
