Imagine waking up to the magnificent views of the Blue Ridge Mountains through your large picture windows in your master suite. Grabbing your coffee cup and enjoying a steaming cup of jo from Trager Brothers on your wrap around porch as the fog lifts from the mountains. Listen to the birds chirp and the relaxing sounds of a babbling river while reading your morning paper. During hot summer days, stay cool and refreshed in the Rock Fish River by kayaking or inner tubing. Then end the evening with friends and family having a BBQ down by your riverfront outdoor kitchen and roasting marshmallows over your custom stone fire pit.
Sounds intriguing doesn’t it? Owning a piece of riverfront farm property has many benefits, endless opportunities and of course a few headaches but what doesn’t? The vision for your farm is only yours to create. Whether you want to have farm animals, start beekeeping (which has become quite popular and even allows for tax breaks or a grant), raise poultry to enjoy farm fresh eggs every morning, vegetable gardening for farm fresh salads, growing grapes in your own vineyard, or just enjoying sprawling rolling hills around your property.
Not owning a farm myself but having close friends and neighbors with riverfront farms: it is hard work, rigorous at times but rewarding. After endless hours planting and tending gardens, in a few months having a bounty of farm fresh vegetables and fruits is well worth the sweat. Watching goats give birth to adorable twin “kids” while they discover their legs and ability to jump around is too cute for words. Keeping bees to help pollinate your crop but also enjoying raw honey that was created from the pollen of your farm flowers is amazing! Cultivating wine grapes to create your own wine such as my father in law does is hours of work but having that crisp glass of Riesling is oh so yummy!
