Blue Brae Farm
On 36 rolling acres nestled in the Blue Ridge foothills, Blue Brae Farm LLC operates a Nigerian Dwarf goat dairy farm. During this year’s Farm Tour, guests can visit and interact with our friendly, playful goats, as well as say hello to our chickens, sheep and horses.
If it’s history you’re looking for, Blue Brae Farm has that too. Listed on the National Register of Historical Places, as part of the Ben Venue Rural Historic District, the property enjoys preservation of the original 110 year old barn (now the Cottage), an Ice House, Smoke/Meat House, Well House, Shed (now the chicken coop) and the Camp Cabin (farmhand bunk house). As part of a now larger home, the original four-room pre-Civil War house (circa 1830’s) remains today and would have been visible to General Robert E. Lee’s soldiers as they marched past the house on Ben Venue Road (then Richmond Road) on their way to do battle in Gettysburg.
