Blue Ridge Institute's Farm Museum

Experience early [c. 1800] rural life in the Blue Ridge at the BRI’s Blue Ridge Farm Museum, a re-created Virginia-German farmstead. Costumed interpreters prepare meals over the open hearth, drive oxen, blacksmith, and carry out a host of other household and farm chores of the period. In the gardens and around the log farm buildings heirloom vegetables and historic breeds of livestock speak to the region's agricultural heritage.

Open to walk-in visitors Saturdays 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sundays 1 to 5 p.m., mid-May through mid-August. Group tours are available by reservation any day April through October. Admission is charged.
