October 4 Was a Perfect Day

Several thousand people turned out to enjoy a perfect fall day at Pleasant Grove and the sights, sounds, and smells of the 19th annual Old Farm Day. The event is a fundraiser that benefits the Fluvanna Historical Society and the building fund for a planned Farm Heritage Museum in Pleasant Grove Park.  The museum will house collections of antique farm equipment that have been the centerpiece of Old Farm Day since its founding and interpret the legacy of Fluvanna’s agricultural history.


Did You Take Pictures at Old Farm Day?

A lot of people were using their cameras to capture the exhibits & events – and their kids and grandkids having a ball!  Pick out your favorites (limit three per person) and enter the 2014 Photography Competition.   The rules are simple and you could be our Best in Show winner this year – that award comes with a $50 prize!

Congratulations to Barbara Stanton of Fork Union, winner of the Farm Heritage Museum's raffle! And thank you to all of you who bought tickets to help us realize the dream of building a year round home for the incredible collections of antique farm equipment that are the centerpiece of Old Farm Day.  This raffle raised over $1000 for the museum fund. 
And a big round of applause for Mary Tilman and Carolyn Talley for coming up with the idea for this raffle.   They collected the gift items, set up the booth and spent many hours in the weeks before Old Farm Day selling raffle tickets at locations around the county.  Good work, ladies!
