Dirt Farm Freeride
March 25 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Dirt Farm Brewing is excited to team up with Mark Stapperfenne to present the first ever Dirt Farm Freeride!
This event will take place on our family farm in Bluemont, Virginia! Athletes will hop on their skateboards and start their ride at the top of the Dirt Farm driveway and cruise on down the mountain past the vineyard, the hop yard, cherry trees and farmland. Spectators will be able to walk the course and watch the action!
We’re stoked to bring the Downhill Community onto our slice of the Blue Ridge Mountains. We offer panoramic views, a Kitchen Workshop offering killer bites, on-site parking, and of course…farm fresh beer!
