When people think of Loudoun county they don’t often think of our farms but Loudoun is number one in Virginia for the following:
- Acres of grapes
- Amount of hops grown
- Amount of honey collected and sold
- Number of alpacas and llamas
- Farmers who are women, Latino, Hispanic, Asian or have military service
Loudoun County has 1,259 farms covering 121,932 acres. Since I have lived in Western Loudoun I have seen farms with goats, sheep, lots of cattle, horses, donkeys, peacocks, lots of chickens, alpacas and llamas, hogs and even buffalo. The rabbits, turkeys, skunks, groundhogs, very large turtles, Bald Eagles, and deer are wild.
Don’t miss Loudoun farm tours on May 18th and 19th. Information here.
