Seven-year-old Amani Melson keeps her best friend, Bean, company as the livestock guardian keeps watch over the chicken pen at Off the Grid Farm in Sperryville.

Her mom, Elizabeth Melson, is the manager of the farm, which on Saturday hosted Hemp Harvest Day, a Rappahannock Farm Tour Open House sponsored by the Rappahannock Hemp Cooperative.
