Enjoy the sights, sounds, smells and taste of Culpeper County on farms in the beautiful Blue Ridge foothills. The event provides a wonderful educational experience and includes an array of hands on activities and demonstrations. There are a variety of farms and related businesses on this year’s tour. Those participating reflect our agricultural heritage and the millions of dollars in production, wages, and salaries generated by the agricultural industry in our county and state.
The tour, a self-guided driving experience, can be started at the Welcome Center located at Culpeper Agricultural Enterprises on Route 29.
The Welcome Center will play host to an antique tractor display compliments of Griffwood Farms and Taye Griffin, and on Saturday, AG Enterprises and the Culpeper Farm Tour will accommodate Seymour Auctions with a live poultry/small animal auction. Stop by to experience this authentic farm event. Pick up your brochures and giveaways, as well as learn how to win door prizes at the Welcome Center before you head out to meet your local farmer. A special give-away, in celebration of the 20th Anniversary, will be available to the first 100 families on Saturday, October 7th. And, Farm Tour t-shirts will be available for purchase.
Be sure to bring your still and video camera to capture the moments! Food and drink are available at various farms. In addition, specific activities at the farms have designated times. Check your brochure for more details, activities and locations.
**The Farm Tour will take place rain or shine. Please be advised, some activities and individual farms may be closed as a result of inclement weather.
