Bedford County Family Farm Tour

Saturday, August 20 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. plan on joining the 2011 Bedford County Family Farm Tour, a free family-oriented event. In celebration of Bedford's diverse agriculture, this year's tour will high-light Little Doc's Llamas and Alpacas, home to an array of farm animals including, in addition to the llamas and alpacas, beef cattle, sheep, goats, ducks, chickens, and more. Other anticipated activities include hands on history with Thomas Jefferson's Poplar Forest; a demonstration of an antique cider press, farm equipment and livestock including miniature horses and Bedford Area Master Gardeners on hand to share their knowledge of gardening in our area. Additionally, groups scheduled to be with us with information and displays include other local farms, the Bedford County Hunt, the Farm Bureau Women's Committee, Peaks of Otter Soil and Water Conservation District, the Virginia Department of Forestry and Bedford 4-H/FFA. Lunch will be available for purchase. You are welcome to bring a picnic but please leave your pets at home.
