Future Harvest Member Meet Up at Henway Hard Cider

June 24 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

Farmer Happy Hour, anyone? We’re excited to announce that our first Member Meet-Up for the 2024 season will take place on Monday, June 24th from 4:00 – 7:00 pm at Henway Hard Cider Company in Bluemont, Virginia.



The Zurschmeide Family has been farming in Loudoun County, Virginia since the 1970s. In 1993, the second generation of Zurschmeides started Great Country Farms with a CSA program delivering produce boxes as far as Arlington and Alexandria. The farm now offers extensive pick-your-own orchards and experiences, a farm store, educational programming, and has TWICE been voted “Agribusiness of the Year” by the Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce. It is a top destination for agri-tourism and also incorporates Dirt Farm BreweryBluemont Vineyard, and several event spaces & airbnbs. Henway Hard Cider is the most recent of the Zurschmeide’s farm-to-glass adventures. It opened in 2019 with the perfect patio for parties beside the farm’s catch-and-release pond.


Join us for a laid-back evening and a hard cider. All are welcome! It is our great pleasure to facilitate networking, community-building, and peer-to-peer learning amongst farmers in our region. Future Harvest members will have a drink ticket on us. Non-members – please come! Surprise: You will become a member with your ticket purchase. Cider and soda for all.

Arrive right at 4:00 pm to take a wagon tour of the farm. Then, from 5:00 – 7:00 pm we’ll be playing Farm Bingo, handing out prizes, and making sure everyone gets one of our brand new removable tattoos. Loudoun Economic Development will be on site to talk about their programs and offerings, and just like last year, are sponsoring scrumptious snacks and light bites from the venue. Apple cider donuts and seasonal fruit will be on tables courtesy of Great Country Farms. And stay tuned… we might even have some chill, light music from a local duo.

Note: This networking event will take place following our Farm Photography Workshop with Molly Peterson, an internationally published food & farm life photographer and farm marketing consultant helping to translate the beauty and miracle of nature and life surrounding us all. Please do consider attending both events and exploring the grounds of this exemplary farm business in between. Learn more and sign up here.
