About the event
Treat yourself to this unique, extended Farm Tour in the tranquil Ovoka valley surrounded by the Shenandoah's rolling mountains. Participate first-hand in the care of Ovoka's animals, fields, and work with the people involved in our specialized small-farm operation. Learn from these featured farmers about their role in shifting agricultural trends towards clean and local food production. As part of your Farm Tour, your tastebuds will be treated, too. Enjoy the highest quality dishes featuring Ovoka Wagyu beef prepared by notable local chefs with ingredients sourced from local farms. Escape from the rush and noise of urban life and return to the bucolic life where you can get your hands dirty and then enjoy the 5-star fruits of your labor. For 2-days you will be immersed in the peace of country living for this amazing Farm Tour experience. Join us for a truly immersive farm-to-table weekend away!
The 2-day Weekend Farmer Farm Tour is customized for each guest and is as inclusive as you wish. In addition to your deep-dive tour of life on the farm, you will get to bunk down in our refurbished Log Cabin - one of the oldest structures in the area and one of the most beautiful. The Bunkhouse fridge comes stocked for you to enjoy gourmet, locally-produced snacks and beverages to keep your energy up or to enjoy while winding/wining down. Each morning, the fresh eggs you collected the day before along with delicious, local-baked goods will be waiting at your front door so you can fuel up before we get to work. Additionally, your Weekend Farmer Farm Tour includes your "I'm-On-Top-of-the-World-Wagyu-Tasting" luncheon on the top of Paris Mountain -- where, on a clear day, you can see the Washington Monument.
After a long day of farming life, our guests also always enjoy their private, "Whirlwind of Wagyu Grand Tasting" prepared by one of our amazing Chef partners on Saturday evening in the Main House dining room, where the exploding colors of a beautiful sunset will flood in the west-facing windows. The Main House is appointed with beautiful antiques from the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries to maintain the home's historic character and the Ovoka Family adds the personality and warmth to truly make each guest feel at home! In addition to our activities on Ovoka during your weekend, we love arranging off-site visits as part of your experience to see some of our neighboring agricultural partners in action, including our lovely local wineries and distilleries, equine activities, and pick-your-own orchards. Give us a holler to set up your special in-depth, Farm Tour weekend - you'll wish you started farming sooner!
