It's hard to believe that this is the last week of April! In the last couple of weeks we went from a terrible freeze to summer-like weather, hot and dry!
Rain or shine, the Tasting Room is perfect for music and food on Friday nights. Come out on April 29 to see Tara Mills and Jimmy Stelling play and enjoy Blue Ridge Pizza at its best.
Free admission, always dog friendly and child friendly. We are discouraging picnics on Friday nights in support of our food truck vendor.
Tara Mills is a singer and songwriter in Charlottesville, Virginia. Inspired by the Blue Ridge Mountains and the rich musical traditions tied to them, Tara Mills describes her music as, "original blue ridge mountain folk." Influenced by bluegrass, old country, and traditional mountain folk, she creates an original sound that captures true human feeling and emotion.
In Tara’s current project, Tara Mills and Jimmy Stelling, she combines her lyrics and voice with Tennessee native Jimmy Stelling to create a very powerful yet driving original sound described as a mix of modern day folk, bluegrass, and americana.
Jimmy Stelling is the son of Geoff Stelling, founder of Stelling banjos, and is one of the founders of the successfully touring band, The Hackensaw Boys, out of Charlottesville, Virginia. Jimmy’s unique drive and tasteful melodies on the banjo compliment and harmonize to the sweet songs and emotion the two capture while playing.
Blue Ridge Pizza Co. is a 100% wood-fired pizza catering company in Charlottesville, Virginia. They focus on locally produced, seasonal ingredients whenever possible and love picking up toppings from the farmers market on the morning of an event.
Spring seems to be quickly fading into summer. This means warmer evenings which are perfect for relaxing out at the Adventure Farm Tasting Room on Friday nights.
Come out on April 22 between 6 and 9pm, to hear the sounds of Gina Sobel and Dhara Goradia are Epistrophe and eat delicious food from South Fork Food Truck. A great way to relax, drink 100% Estate grown wine as you watch the sunset over the Blue Ridge Mountains, hang with friends, family and dogs!
Gina Sobel’s music is overflowing with energy and improvisational spirit. She’s a devoted multi-instrumentalist – virtuosic on flute and voice and just as expressive on sax and guitar. Gina’s composition takes two main directions. She writes songs with piercing lyrics and soaring vocal melodies as well as jazz tunes that bring in elements of funk, modal jams and found sounds.
South Fork Food Truck is a mobile kitchen specializing in inspired southern cuisines, including down home family recipes and new takes on old classics. We believe food made from scratch using the freshest ingredients creates unsurpassed flavor. That’s why we use local farms and bakeries to help us provide you with a fresh and delicious experience.

Check out Sam Cregger this Friday, April 8 from 6-9pm.
Singer-songwriter, Cregger's own music blends the rugged self-reliance and yearning of a western frontiersman with the deeply rooted loyalty of a born and bred Virginian. Musically, Sam counts Ryan Bingham, Lucinda Williams, and Ray LaMontagne (to name a few) as some of his strongest influences. At the same time, he draws inspiration from the western stories and characters of John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, and Cormac McCarthy.
When he’s not playing music, Sam works as a local farmer outside of Charlottesville, Virginia.
