Happy Henz, owned by Alex and Susan Blake Henze, is an experimental farm using organic methods to grow field crops including heritage corn, small grains including wheat oats, barley, buckwheat, sorghum, millet, pumpkins, watermelon, hops, garbonzo beans and sunflowers.Our ultimate goal is to produce enough organic produce to feed our pastured raised chickens and miniature goats. We currently sell our pastured eggs at local outlets in Rappahannock County. Rappahannock Furniture Restoration and S.Blake Guitar shop is also located on the farm and will be open for visitors during the Farm Tour.
