The Loudoun County Department of Economic Development Rural Business Development team focuses primarily on promoting agricultural products and assists in the development of new agricultural businesses. The agricultural development staff produces informational materials, sponsors educational programs and agri-tourism events, and promotes Loudoun VA Made; Loudoun VA Grown products and farmer-to-consumer sales through directories and a number of farmers market opportunities in locations throughout the county.
The Loudoun Farm Tours attract thousands of visitors from across the country to the beautiful Loudoun Valleys, with views of the Blue Ridge and Short Hill mountains all just minutes west of Washington Dulles International Airport. Visitors to Loudoun County can enjoy free, self-guided driving tours to participating farms and wineries during these county-sponsored events. The Fall Farm Tour showcases the colors, people and products of the Loudoun Valleys and is held the third weekend in October.
