October 2021 Issue


In the October issue of Virginia Living, we meet equestrian Kim Kirschnick, UVA’s Cavman, and we visit Historic Waterford Village, which churns out charm for it’s annual fair. Try our game bird recipes from Primland’s executive chef, Ryan De Rieux, inspired by our story on upland bird hunting at Primland, Orapax, and other Virginia game preserves. Learn about the buzz on Merrie Mill, Keswick’s “maximalist wonderland,” and travel to Warm Springs, where a pair of winemakers work their magic on cider. Then follow writer Caroline Kettlewell’s stylish romp through Parrish View Farm, where the Parrish family planted a few pumpkin seeds and grew a flourishing holiday enterprise. At last, check our tips for healthy living and our Top Hospital Awards in our annual Hospitals & Health Care supplement, recognizing the best of Virginia’s hospitals for excellence in patient care. Pick up your October 2021 issue today!
