HERMITAGE — Looking beyond the black fences of his horse paddocks, Craig Nargi can see a poultry farm, two dairies and rolling Augusta County hills in every direction.|
Within his 15 acres, he envisions a seamless continuation of that agricultural landscape, but with additional amenities to attract tourists.
Nargi’s Hermitage Hill Farm and Stables is one of the first Augusta County farms designed for agritourism and advertised accordingly. While the stables function for traditional horse boarding and training, much of Nargi’s business plan anticipates educational trips by school groups, riding lessons and visits from hobby horse riders.
County officials consider Hermitage Hill far ahead of the local agritourism curve, but while Nargi enjoys the unique position, he’d rather not be alone in his endeavor for long.
So Hermitage Hill on Thursday will play host to the area’s first agritourism networking event.
