The Farmington Hunt kennels and clubhouse are located in northwestern Albemarle County near Free Union. Our territory encompasses the rolling hills and fields at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where we have followed hounds since 1929, and reaches into historic southern Albemarle along the Hardware and James rivers. Our country’s diverse terrain presents constant opportunity for great sport with a wide variety of riding experiences.

President Message Heading

FHC President's Report, February 2018

Farmington Hunt Club closed out 2017 in grand fashion, with the annual Christmas Party being one of the most enjoyable on record. We had high hopes going into 2018, but unfortunately encountered the "January Deep Freeze", which brought most activities to a screeching halt. Breaking ice in water tubs became a daily routine and the frozen ground and streams resulted in a great many cancelled hunting days. When the hounds were able to get out, the lack of moisture made for difficult scenting conditions. Luckily the situation has dramatically improved since then, with warmer temperatures and much needed rain. As we approach the last four weeks of hunting season, everyone looks forward to good sport and fun times.
There are a number of events and activities coming up with joint meets and horse activities- it sends an important message that FHC is an involved member in the overall hunt community. Please contact Joy Crompton, MFH for details on joint meets. Closing Meet is March 17th at Mint Meadows. The Oak Ridge/Farmington Hunt Ball is March 31st, and it is ORH's turn to host. Please support their efforts. Also, the FHC Annual Meeting is being held Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at the club house.  Happy Hunting!
