Rich in a farming tradition passed down through the generations, Patrick County is home to several family farms that are still of great significance to the area. Doe Run Farm in Ararat is a full-blown farm operation where visitors can even try out a corn maze. Water buffaloes roam at Mulberry Farm, and fruit is ripe for the picking at Wade’s Orchard in Woolwine, and HC Harold Orchard in Ararat. A walk through the vineyard at Stanburn Winery uncovers the heart of the operation, and the “fruits of the labor” at both Stanburn and Villa Appalaccia are there for the sampling. And the Stuart Farmers’ Market hosts many local farmers and their homegrown goods.
