Glenwood Farm in Virginia

Written by Posted On Wednesday, 13 May 2020 08:01

Looking for a diversified farm for sale in Virginia? Look no further than Glenwood Farm in beautiful Somerset, Virginia. This Madison County Farm offers 360+/- acres of fertile soils and lush pastures as well as significant frontage along the Rapidan River.

Pasture Land

The farm consists of approximately 125 acres of grazing land seeded with Kentucky 31 fescue. All pastures offer either spring- or well-fed waterers. The perimeter fence was updated approximately nine years ago and the cross-fencing allows for conventional rotational grazing. Much of the pasture land and the cropland are suitable for hay production. All of the streams have been fenced-off from the livestock.


There is a circa 1850's home on the farm as well as a tenant home. The manor home, named Glenwood, needs some TLC, yet retains many of its original fixtures. Both homes will be sold "as-is".

Recreational Opportunities

For the equestrian, the fence rows all have coops, maintained by the Keswick Hunt, for their foxhunts. The new owner is not required to continue the foxhunting tradition, but even if you are not an equestrian, you can enjoy the beauty of the hunt.

With apprroximately 4,000 feet of Rapidan River frontage, Glenwood Farm offers many fishing and swimming holes. At certain times of the year, you can put in a canoe or kayak. Abundant with wildlife (whitetail deer, turkey and quail), the farm offers great hunting and/or wildlife watching.

Investment Opportunities

Glenwood Farm is an excellent candidate for a conservation easement or for long-term development options. Should you not want to farm, the current farm operator would like to continue his lease and may be willing to commit to a longer-term lease.
