July in Hunt Country

Dear Friends, 

I can say with some well-informed confidence that July is truly the season of bustling and vibrant farmers markets, outdoor events and weekly al fresco feasts. It seems there is not a day that passes without enjoying something fresh and locally grown, heading to a gathering in a picturesque setting or simply enjoying the slow, warm evenings of early Summer. Now is the time to soak everything in, right up to that sweet Summer smell wafting across these Virginia hay fields.

Cheers to Summer!


Mark your calendars! Here are the can’t-miss sales and events at Scouted businesses this month. Make sure to follow us on Instagram to keep up with all of Hunt Country’s events and happenings!
