Fulfillment Farms

About the Farm

In 1997, WFV acquired almost 2,000 acres in Albemarle County near Scottsville. This tract, known as Fulfillment Farms, was a gift from Thomas Forrer, whose grandfather served on the board of the Game Commission from 1933 to 1958. Mr. Forrer's vision for this land was simple - to provide recreational opportunities to outdoor enthusiasts. The Foundation, true to Mr. Forrer's wishes, manages this property for general, no-fee public access. It is widely used for hunting, bird-watching, and hiking. It is a truly beautiful piece of land, with the ability to support many people pursuing many activities.

Fulfillment Farms

Fulfillment Farms is located in Esmont, Virginia, approximately 6 miles west of the town of Scottsville. The terrain varies from vast open fields, to steep wooded slopes. An approximate 200-acre area lies north of Route 6 in Esmont, and encompasses an old slate quarry, as well as a beaver pond complex. The Foundation is pleased to welcome responsible sportsmen and visitors to this property on a year-round basis.

All visitors to Fulfillment Farms, for whatever purpose, must obtain a no-fee permit. We issue two types of permits: a hunting permit, issued per hunting season; and a general use permit for those who wish to hike or bird watch on the property, issued annually.  In general, if you are issued a permit to visit the property, prior to each visit, you must contact Tom Morris to request specific day permission. In this way, we can keep you informed of circumstances which might prevent you from visiting the property, such as farm closure due to maintenance or a special event. You can also view our Calendar of Events for updated information on happenings at Fulfillment Farms. Please note, however, that the schedule may change at any time.
