Mark your calendars: Loudoun County Farm Tour

Twice each year, in the fall and the spring, Loudoun farms open their doors for the general public to visit thanks to the Loudoun Farms Fall and Spring Farm Tour.  The Spring Farm Tour is great for seeing all the newborn baby pigs, lambs, calves, horses, and other animals.  It's also a great excuse to visit some of the awesome Loudoun County vineyards and do a little wine-tasting.
