It’s a celebration of chickens and all they produce during the Coop de Ville tour on Sunday, August 4. The tour begins at 10:30 a.m. with brunch at the Grey Barn in Chilmark. Then everyone heads out to visit the five participating farms for a tour of their coops and a better understanding of local, sustainable agriculture. Leave your pets at home during the tour. Chickens and dogs rarely forge friendships.

The participating farms include: Spring Moon Farm in West Tisbury, Native Earth Teaching Farm in West Tisbury, Grandmommy’s Farm, The Maxner’s in West Tisbury, Round About Farm in Oak Bluffs and Giordano’s Little Chicken Coop in West Tisbury.
