Tour offers taste of local fare
Bison, cheese, wine and a road trip.
Prairie Fruits Farm's "Fork in the Road" tour kicks off Sunday. Join them for an afternoon of agri-tourism and exotic tastes.
The event starts at noon at Prairie Fruits Farm, 4410 N. Lincoln Ave., Champaign.
After meeting up, visitors will spend about four hours on a lazy Sunday afternoon enjoying a goat dairy and organic orchard, and wild game — bison, cattle, elk and deer.
Besides the ranch, there's an antique shop and a winery: KD Ranch & Sugar Shack Antiques in Oakwood and Sleepy Creek Vineyards in Fairmount.
The tour begins at Prairie Fruits Farm, then heads to Sugar Shack, ending at Sleepy Creek Vineyards with a private wine tasting accompanied by a cheese and meat platter.
The price is $40, and is only open to adults.
Ticket price includes all three tours and tastings of cheese, gelato, wine and meats.
