Scheduled Events

Our fields and show barn are available for rent. The farm is the perfect location for an idyllic wedding. We are located in the prestigious Blenheim area of Albemarle County and offer a budget friendly alternative to the area's higher priced venues.  Consider us for your next family reunion, company picnic, party or equestrian clinic.  A limited number of non-agriculteral events will be booked annually.

Event planning assistance is available. We also have an "in house" photographer ( Eva Lightfoot Photos ).
We offer a few scheduled events throughout the year including llama and alpaca shows. New for 2017, we are planning a fiber festival for Labor Day weekend.  We will post the 2017 calendar as soon as dates are set.
