From the Farmer

Sneads Farm

 Fredericksburg, VA

From the time he was 11, Emmett Snead III wanted to farm. In 1980, Snead bought the land that would be Snead Farm, continuing a family farming tradition. He and his wife Ellen see themselves as a small part of the long-term story of the land making up Snead Farm, so they’ve done everything they can to protect it. They practice no-till planting, regularly rotate crops, and even placed 290 acres of their farm under conservation easement. This means it’s permanently protected from development. A true steward of the land, Snead wants to “leave it better than [he] found it.”
