Farm to Fork Fondo

Farm to Fork Fondo - Shenandoah

September 12 2021
Middletown, Virginia, USA

Thousands of years shaped this stunning landscape, while hundreds of years of history shaped the farms. Step back in time while you take in the scenic views and green rolling hills -- this is Shenandoah.

The historic Shenandoah Valley is nestled between the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains in the northern portion of Virginia. It's the largest agricultural producer in Virginia, boasting four of the top five agricultural counties in Virginia.

The Shenandoah Valley is steeped in farming tradition, tracing its roots all the way back to 1730s when the first settlers came to the area. Growing rapidly, by the Civil War it was considered the “Granary of the Confederacy” and an important strategic region for both sides. It was host to Thomas Jackson’s famous defense, earning him the well-known nickname “Stonewall.” Ultimately the war left the farms and fields destroyed, but since then the Shenandoah Valley has returned to and continues its proud agricultural tradition.
