Everyone knows that garlic and onions make the world a better place, especially the folks at Agua Linda Farm in Amado. Those good foodie folks at the farm are helping to spread the garlic and onion gospel with their second Garlic and Onion Festival this weekend. It starts Friday, June 19, at 5 p.m., and ends Saturday, June 20 at 9 p.m. To get to the farm from Tucson, head south on Interstate 19 and get off at Exit 42. Agua Linda Farm is located just north of Tubac off the interstate at this exit in Amado. From the news release:
Farmer Stewart Loew has been growing alliums for years and last fall he increased his crop to about 3 acres. In celebration of this savory harvest, the farm will have live music and scenic hayrides—free of charge! There will also be food venders offering up some tasty treats and the farm store will be well stocked with tear jerking-onions and pungent garlic!
