Registration starts Friday for the Paso Robles Chamber of Commerce’s 51st Annual Agribusiness Tour.

The daylong bus tour of agricultural businesses and historical sites offers San Luis Obispo County residents a behind-the-scenes look at local agriculture.

The tour “has allowed residents and visitors the opportunity to meet the hard-working farmers and producers who keep the heritage of agriculture alive and viable on the Central Coast,” Ag Tour Committee Chairman Mike Ryan said in a statement.

This year’s tour features the North County's rural Parkfield area and also includes stops at Mission San Miguel, Cagliero Ranch, V6 Ranch, Parkfield Community Center, Jack Ranch, Rick Machado Livestock Ranch and Pear Valley Vineyards and Winery, according to the chamber.

Buses depart 8:30 a.m. May 1 from the Pioneer Museum, 2010 Riverside Ave. in Paso Robles.

Tickets are $65 per person and are available at 1225 Park St. in Paso Robles or by calling 238-0506.
