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

  July 2014     

We are all suffering from the summer heat and sweaty horses but don't forget, September is coming. Time to get going. If you are riding hunt country trails, carry a clipper and open up the overhangs and briars. If you encounter blow downs, let Matthew know. He and Tommy are starting to clear in earnest and need our help.

The repairs to the clubhouse are complete and painting should be finished by the time you read this. All systems should be go for the Labor Day picnic and upcoming events. All who attended Bobbie Wells' birthday event at Grace Vineyards enjoyed a wonderful evening and the beauty of our country was in evidence. Let's hopehope we can keep it that way. Our hunt ball is 6 months away but planning is underway and we are delighted that Ann Horner has agreed to chair the auction committee along with many veterans. Thanks Ann and we look forward to your leadership. Treasurer Thoma Johnson reports a steady financial situation and Martha Drum's committee is working on membership simplifications. More to come in September.

Stay cool and get your horses fit. Don't forget your Coggins tests if they are due, booster your vaccinations for hunting and check out your horses' teeth so that is not a problem come hunting.

Keep cool and happy summertime.

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!
