FHC Title

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.

President Message Heading

  April 2014    
Congratulations to all who participated in the Maury River Hunter Trials and to all the winners who traveled to the our co-sponsored event at Virginia Horse center to compete on April 5. When Farmington riders participate, they are sure to bring home the top ribbons. Kudos to Carolyn, Stephanie and Charlotte for well earned trophies.The FHC Hunter trials on April 12 were a huge success with great entries and a beautiful day.(See report and photos) Fun was had by all. Liz King and her crew set a great course and there were 50 participants, about 20 more than last year! Thanks to Liz and her co-workers and to Elizabeth and Karl for hosting us at their wonderful Hunting Ridge. The tailgaters may have been the biggest winners as they did not have to sweat under black wool. There were numerous winners in the food class! The annual FHC Puppy Show will be on May 4th. Please come out to the kennels to see the new entry and celebrate the pack. Of course, in true FHC fashion there will be plenty of food and drink. The kennels have been cleaned and painted inside and the hounds are starting to adjust to their summer routine.Many thanks to Dale Dealtrey, Mark Thompson, Mary Quinn Martin and her parents, for staging the first FHC Gold and Silver Sale on April 10th. The folks at the Glass House Winery hosted the event and it was a fun and productive afternoon. There was a steady flow of folks all afternoon and Paula McConnell had such good food arranged and of course Glass House wines.


The annual meeting is Wednesday,April 30th. Please come out to participate in your elections as well as hear the committee reports for the past year and learn about projections for this upcoming year. Dinner will also be served. See you there.

Bellair Farm CSA is located on historic Bellair Farm, 900 beautiful acres just south of Charlottesville, Va. Our goal is to connect our member families to the land, their food and their farmer. We grow 50 different types of veggies in addition to some fruit and flowers all under strict adherence to the organic standards. In addition to picking up their weekly share at the farm or the 2 weekday markets, our members are welcome to enjoy the acre+ of Pick-Your-Own crops, our annual farm festivals and our Saturday workshops designed to educate the community about sustainable agriculture. For the 2012 season we will be cultivating over 20 acres of land so we'll have plenty of volunteer opportunities available for groups or individuals who want to get their hands dirty and learn about sustainable agriculture. Call us at 434-262-9021 to learn more or to sign up for our CSA!
