Adventure Farm is a sustainable family farm located in northern Albemarle County. The stewardship of the farm’s natural resources, begun in 1950 by E. Morris Chisholm, is continued today, some 60 plus years later. Today, Adventure Farm is still family owned and operated, home to the 3rd and 4th generations. The Chisholm family comes from a long line of farmers in Louisa County, Virginia emigrating from Scotland in 1716.
The farm’s pastures are rolling and gentle. Naked Creek runs through to the reservoir and the breathtaking Blue Ridge Mountains line our view to west. Numerous lakes and ample woods provide an abundance of wildlife such as geese, ducks, deer, fox, dove & quail. It is a haven for nature with preserved open space amidst a modern environment of encroaching development.
Crop diversification and traditional farming practices have improved the land quality by increasing soil fertility and decreasing erosion. Crops such as grapes, hay, corn, soybeans, wheat and livestock such as beef, goats, eggs, pork are produced in their natural cycles, providing for the family as well as the surrounding community.
Adventure Farm is currently offering some of its premium beef for sale. The Angus Saler cross produces a superior animal. Steers are bred, born and raised on Adventure Farm. They are grass fed and grain finished for superb marbling. The cattle are raised entirely in open pastures. The steers are processed at Faquier’s Finest Country Butcher Shop in Virginia, dry aged 2-3 weeks and flash frozen.
