    Agritourism Continues to Expand with New Events Center

    Frederick County resident Caroline “Dixie” Scheulen’s dream of opening a wedding venue on family farmland in western Frederick County has finally come true. On Wednesday afternoon, Scheulen and about 30 members from the Top of Virginia Regional Chamber held a ribbon- cutting ceremony to mark the opening of Fox Meadow Barn — a wedding venue featuring a 5,000-squarefoot barn located at 350 Old Firehouse Lane.
     
    The venue is immediately south of Northwestern Pike (U.S. 50) and Round Hill Road and immediately west of Woodchuck Lane (Va. 654). It is situated on land owned by Scheulen’s parents, Bob and Claire Boyd, who own about 1,000 acres collectively known as Cloverdale Farm. The farm was started by Scheulen’s great- grandfather, Frederick Boyd, and his son, Dr. Robert Boyd, in 1952. Hay, beef cattle and sheep are raised there.
     
    Fox Meadow Barn is in a secluded field, which Scheulen said provides privacy that can be lacking at other wedding venues.
    The building features tall, timber- framed ceilings, a fireplace, bridal changing room, prep kitchen, indoor restrooms and back patio with French doors. 
     
    In addition to wedding ceremonies, Fox Meadow Barn can accommodate bridal showers, engagement parties, elopements and rehearsal dinners. The business offers a network of vendors that can assist with wedding planning.
