With summer on the horizon, you might already be considering what kind of activities you should coordinate for your kids, family or company that’s coming in town for a visit.

Maybe you’re just thinking about something you can do for your own entertainment.

Wytheville has a lot to offer, but a real gem on the western side of the state is the Beagle Ridge Herb Farm, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The farm has so much beauty to take in, and there is also so much to learn there.

Fun events and classes

The farm specializes in lavender, so after 20 years, owners Ellen Reynolds and her husband have a ton of knowledge to share about it.
