The Farmington Hunt kennels and clubhouse are located in northwestern Albemarle County near Free Union. Our territory encompasses the rolling hills and fields at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where we have followed hounds since 1929, and reaches into historic southern Albemarle along the Hardware and James rivers. Our country’s diverse terrain presents constant opportunity for great sport with a wide variety of riding experiences.
Hunting is going well and sport has been high thanks to Matthew, staff and our hounds. Upcoming on October 18 is our annual Hound Dinner. This is being organized by Carol Ham and her crew and will feature a “Shelly” dinner, an eight hound silent auction, a two hound live auction, and a painting of a puppy from the litter that made it through so much stress. This will be serious fun and will raise needed funds for our hounds. Make your reservations a.s.a.p. since it is a limited event due to space. We will be hosting the Blue Ridge Hounds that weekend as well with their hounds hunting on Saturday and Farmington Hounds hunting Sunday. It lines up to be a great weekend of hunting and fun.
The following weekend, Oct 25th is our annual Fall Horse Show at The Barracks featuring the Jumper Night dinner. Come out and enjoy the jumpers and a great dinner. For full details and schedule information see Events.
Your board discussed logo wear and the various vendors for FHC wear were researched. The two endorsed vendors for anything you want the FHC logo on are “The Monogram Shop” and “Stitches”. Get in touch with Carol Ham for contact info.
See you hunting and at the Hound Dinner.
