Virtually Tour Loudoun County Farms From the Comfort of Home

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.

Here are the 25 farms that are featured on Loudoun’s Virtual Farm Tour at launch:

  1. American Academy of Equestrian Sciences

Signature Theatre just released single tickets for all 33rd season productions, which highlights the organization’s long-time relationship with legendary composer Stephen Sondheim. Beginning with the musical adaptation of The Color Purple and irreverent No Place to Go, the season continues with three Sondheim musicals, the DC premieres of Off-Broadway hit Which Way to the Stage and Pulitzer Prize finalist Selling Kabul, the Tony Award®-winning rock musical Passing Strange, and return of Signature’s cabaret series honoring legendary artists.

“Last November, the world lost an icon. The death of Stephen Sondheim was a blow to everyone in the theater community. Signature Theatre would not be the same without Sondheim — he IS Signature’s ‘signature.’ This season, we are honoring the legend with productions of Into the Woods, Pacific Overtures and Sweeney Todd dedicated to his memory. These shows represent the diversity and range of Sondheim,” said Signature’s Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner about the new season.
