Tremen­dous tour — and back­drop

Rappahannock News - - FROM PAGE ONE -

The two-day Rappahannock County Farm Tour was an “ab­so­lute suc­cess,” with sev­eral farms greet­ing up­wards of 250 to 300 vis­i­tors dur­ing the week­end. The 2017 Farm Tour fea­tured eleven work­ing farms at ten dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions. The Farm Tour Com­mit­tee ex­tends big thanks to farm venues, vol­un­teers, spon­sors, guide book ad­ver­tis­ers, and in­di­vid­ual com­mit­tee mem­bers. They also ap­plaud Mother Na­ture: “The en­tire county was awash in sun­shine and blue skies — it was a great back­drop for both out-of-town and lo­cal vis­i­tors,” notes tour co-chair Lau­rie Smith. Seen here, one of the more than 40 lla­mas at Freestate Lla­mas, a breed­ing farm tucked away in Gid Brown Hol­low, charms young vis­i­tors to the county.
