2014hounds-snow-cropped-36

Up until the 1980's Farmington's pack was composed primarily of tri-color American Foxhounds, most of which traced their pedigree back to the sought after Bywaters line. Because of the increase in population, a more wooded hunting country, heavy road traffic, and the preference of new huntsmen, there has been a gradual changeover to a predominantly Crossbred pack.  Although Crossbreds don't have the resonant cry of the American Hound, they seem to be better suited to our hunt country. We have continued the old Farmington bloodlines in our breeding program, but instead of being uniformly tri-color, the color of the pack now varies tremendously. At present we hunt about 36 couple, mostly Crossbred. Pictured here: Matthew Cook walking hounds at the Farmington Hunt kennels, January 2014 , photo courtesy of Julie Cook

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!
