We’re hosting free farm tours of our family’s farm and mill in Stuarts Draft, VA. We hope you’ll consider joining us. Here are some frequently asked questions to help you learn more and prepare for your visit!
Who Can Take A Tour?
Our tours are perfect for small groups from local schools, daycare centers, churches, scout troops, etc.
Are Tours Accessible To All?
Our tours are open to everyone in our community, but please understand that we are a working farm and cannot accommodate walkers and wheelchairs in all areas due to uneven ground.
Who Will Lead The Tour?
Your tour guide will be a member of the Miller family who has worked on this land for years.
What Should I Wear?
Dress for walking and in clothes that can get muddy. We recommend good muck boots or sneakers you don’t mind getting dirty. And, don’t forget sunscreen or a hat in those warmer months when the sun is high!
How Long Is The Tour?
We can customize our tour to fit your time frame, but the typical tour takes 1-1-½ hours.
What Can I Expect To See?
We’ll walk you through our mill where we process Non-GMO feed and talk you through the process. We’ll also visit our hogs, cows and chickens to see how they live and roam on our meticulously cultivated pasture. We’ll discuss sustainability and showcase our efforts to minimize our environmental footprint.
Sunrise Farms Is A Family-Owned Business With Deep Roots In the Valley.
The Miller family has been farming for generations. In 2003, Maynard Miller purchased the farm at the current location from the Yoder family who had already begun to implement sustainable farming practices and to retrofit the on-site 1940s mill for non-GMO feeds. Maynard saw Sunrise Farms as an opportunity to build a business that could employ his family and community members in a way that was consistent with his values. Taking care of the land and giving back to the community is at the heart of our family-owned and operated farm and mill. We’re proud to provide rewarding work, quality products and educational experiences to our community. Schedule your farm tour by contacting a member of our team today!
