Get to Know Rappahannock County
Our Sustainable Way of Life
Experience our sustainable way of life in Rappahannock County, where traditional agriculture has given rise to specialized organic farming, orchards, vineyards and artisanal wineries.
Organic meats and produce are available directly from local farmer's or at farmers markets in the county and in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. Rappahannock's artisanal wineries offer wine-tasting events as well as opportunities to work alongside owners in the vineyard at harvest time. Local food markets are also great sources of products from the county.
In addition to practicing sustainable agricultural practices, preserving the natural landscape and its inhabitants comes naturally to residents in Rappahannock County. Our local conservation organizations invite you to join them for workshops and volunteer efforts — a great way to learn, contribute to and experience the beauty of the countryside.
