Every year on the second full weekend in October, the Highland County Hands & Harvest Festival celebrates the culmination of the area’s agricultural production season with maple sugar camps, farm tours, apple butter, the Highland Farmers’ Market, maple doughnuts, local honey, local cider, and more. Visitors can traverse throughout the county and experience farm life amidst the vibrant, autumnal, rolling hills that lovingly embrace the fields and farmlands of Highland County.

Even though Highland County is one of the smallest counties in Virginia, there is still a lot of ground to cover. Here is a sampling of some of the regular activities festival-goers can enjoy during the event:
