Ease Into Nature Open House in Crozet

Visit three locations in one day: Wildrock, Montfair Farm Resort, and Henley’s Orchard, to connect with nature and to meet the owners working to preserve a special way of life close to the land.

Enjoy an authentic Blue Ridge foothills experience at the Ease Into Nature Open House. Start your day with a visit to Wildrock to tour the Playscape and the Bird  Sanctuary. Paddle a canoe, fish and explore the trails at Montfair. Eat a peach and wander the orchards with the fourth-generation owner of Henley’s Orchard.

Meet three women working to preserve authentic Blue Ridge foothills experiences. All three women share a close tie to the land and a desire to share their passion for nature connection with visitors.

  • Leora Sheridan Vincenti: nature artist and manager of the third-generation Montfair Farms Resort
  • Sarah Henley: steward of Henley Orchard, family-owned and operated for four generations
  • Carolyn Schuyler: founder and director of Wildrock, a nonprofit Nature Play and Discovery Center

The Ease Into Nature Open House will mark the beginning of an ongoing partnership of local businesses in support of our vibrant rural economy that works to preserve our beautiful, unique landscape and rural community. The Ease Into Nature program will include a series of tourism itineraries for visitors to select from, including visits to Montfair, Wildrock, and Henley’s Orchard, and other local businesses and attractions. This collaboration is made possible by a Virginia Travel Corporation Partnership Grant. An Ease Into Nature website will launch this summer with more information about these travel itineraries and scheduling details.
