Arlington, VA

For the first time in its 25 year history, the Loudoun Fall Farm Tour will be held virtually, letting you see, hear and shop from your favorite farmers in a socially distant way.

Launching on Saturday, October 17, the online tour will feature more than two dozen stops at launch and is scheduled to go live at 10 a.m.

For the best touring experience, please access it on a desktop device at LoudounFarms.org/FarmTour. Consumers are encouraged to sign up in advance for a notification email and shop the Loudoun Made Loudoun Grown Marketplace.

This initiative follows a successful virtual Spring Farm Tour, which connected thousands of people from 16 countries with 14 Loudoun farms, during the height of the COVID-19 lockdown. This time around, many of the 25 farms are open to the public, but the virtual format allows everyone to get involved.

Each of the featured farms submitted photos, videos, brief descriptions and an educational activity in order to be included in this season’s tour. All vignettes also link to the farm websites and online stores. Additional entries will be added throughout the harvest season on a rolling basis.
