Great Country Farms is a 400 acre working farm situated at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains outside the village of Bluemont, VA. Great Country Farms offers produce as well as the farm experience to its customers.
The Zurschmeide Family has been farming in Loudoun County since the 1970s and Great Country Farms was started by the second generation of Zurschmeides in Loudoun in 1993. The farm started with a Community Supported Agriculture Program (CSA) which has grown over the years and delivers produce to homes as far as Alexandria and Arlington. In 1996 and again in 2007, the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce voted Great Country Farms, “Agribusiness of the Year” for its unique efforts to farm in a difficult climate through innovation, rather than selling out and growing houses.
They owe it all to Farmer Bob for instilling a love of farming. He still visits the farm regularly on weekends to continue that tradition for the new generation of farm visitors and can often be found in the tasting rooms at Bluemont Vineyard or Dirt Farm Brewing, the sister businesses up the mountain. Be sure to look for him on your next visit. As the farm grows, they are thrilled to welcome the next generation of Zurschmeides in the fields, running the tasting rooms, making Kettle Corn, and escorting the Pumpkin Princess of course!
They welcome you to visit their farm, pick some produce, create some memories and begin your own farm adventure as part of their farm family.
