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.
The Board is very grateful to all the members that participated in the membership survey. Ebeth Brann and her committee did an excellent job in formatting the survey and the responses are/ were great.
The recently completed Fanatastic Yard Sale was just that- fantastic! Allyson Louthan did a remarkable job in organizing and running the sale along with her right hand staff of Mark Thompson, B J Korol, and Kate and Thoma Johnson. They were assisted by a huge turnout of volunteers. It truly was a village. Thanks to everyone who worked and donated to the sale. We are especially grateful to Pat Butterfield and Foxfield for hosting the sale.
