How Farm Routes Works
Get out the Map!
• Find a printed maps along the routes, or at the Centre County / Penn State Visitor Center.
• To access all of our Farm Routes info on your phone, download the Tassl mobile app. This app lets you check-in at stops to earn chances to win Farm Routes prizes. Download TASSL from the App Store or Google Play. Sign-in using your Facebook, Google or LinkedIn account. Select the Centre County Farmland Trust Network.
2. Scout your route. When and where to go.
• The map-guides contain descriptions and contact information for all of our stops. Plus, information on when they are generally open. Explore!
• It’s impossible to see everything on one day. A few stops are open all day, every day. The Farmers Markets are typically open one day per week. Some restaurants are open during the day. Others in the evening.
• But things change quickly — so our map-guides contain information on where to find the latest. Facebook is typically where locations post their latest info. It never hurts to call ahead.
3. Safety first.
• Please be safe. Observe a six-foot social distance. Wear a mask as you visit the stops. Please observe all public health guidelines to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19.
4. Enjoy the fresh air!
• Preserving and conserving farmland is our mission and it's important, because farmland provides us with a wonderful quality of life.
• Here in Centre County, autumn is just a spectacular time for a country drive. These country drives are beautiful and open year-round.
• We’re offering prizes until Oct. 31 for folks who check-in from the route stops either on social media or using tassl. Likewise, if a stop offers a free gift or discount when you show your map, that period ends Oct. 31.
The more you check-in via TASSL along the route stops, the more chances to win prizes.
Here’s how to check-in:
