ASAP farm tour photo winners

ASAP's Farm Tour always brings out the crowds – and the cameras. Shutterbugs from near and far descended upon Western North Carolina's family farms on Sept. 21 and 22. They brought with them an enthusiasm for local agriculture and a keen eye for what makes a good shot. Here are the winning photos from ASAP's Farm Tour photo contest.

Winners receive free coffee for an entire year from Appalachian Grown-partner restaurant Green Sage Coffeehouse & Café and a free pass to next year’s Farm Tour. This year’s judges include Paul Rollins (photo curator for The Green Sage cafes), Art Grand (Carolinas' Nature Photographers Association (CNPA), and Susanna Euston: (Carolinas' Nature Photographers Association (CNPA).
