In 1950 APC Rally got a farm in Albemarle Region, Virginia near the town of Charlottesville -residence of the College of Virginia. In those days life in central Virginia was slow-moving and also individuals were scarce. UVA was a tiny state university (all males) and also the entire community of Charlottesville had only 25 thousand residents. There was no I-64, no airport as well as very little contemporary facilities. In those days the ranch’s phone was on a “event line” with all the next-door neighbors and the Journey Ranch was remote as well as “in the nation”.
Over the past 60 years the town of Charlottesville has actually grown, yet Adventure Ranch is still the bucolic paradise it’s always been.
Experience Ranch is a sustainable family members ranch situated in northern Albemarle Region. The stewardship of the ranch’s natural resources, started in 1950 by APC Rally, is proceeded today, some 60 plus years later on. Today, Journey Farm is still family members possessed as well as run, home to the 3rd as well as 4th generations. The Chisholm household originates from a lengthy line of farmers in Louisa Area, Virginia emigrating from Scotland in 1716.
The ranch’s pastures are rolling and mild. Nude Creek runs through to the reservoir and the spectacular Blue Ridge Mountains line our sight to west. Numerous lakes and adequate woods offer an abundance of wild animals such as geese, ducks, deer, fox, dove & quail. It is a haven for nature with managed open room in the middle of a modern-day environment of trespassing development.
Plant diversification and also typical farming techniques have enhanced the land high quality by raising soil fertility and also decreasing disintegration. Plants such as grapes, hay, corn, soybeans, wheat and animals such as beef, goats, eggs, pork are produced in their all-natural cycles, attending to the family members in addition to the bordering community. Farming is essential to us and we take pride in our heritage, welcoming the community to share in our actual farm experience.
