The barn complex has 6 full baths, an open kitchen, stunning exposed oak beams, and historical farm ambience. A separate cottage with loft also has a kitchen and full bath.

This majestic farm sits along a trail of wineries and would be perfect for your dream home, wine making, a B&B, hunt club, art or an antique store, homestead, a nursery or agritourism. Having been at the center of national attention for the last decade, a law named for this land’s farmer expanded Virginia’s Right to Farm Act protecting agritourism as by-right. The purchase includes the farm domain and store where items are sold, events and classes taught and a significant social media following.
The entire area is part of the Crooked Run Valley Historic District, which is part of the National Register of Historic Places. It is one of the most visible landscapes in Virginia. It sits in the charming village of Paris, named in honor of the Marquis de Lafayette for his service in the Revolutionary War. It is visible from one of the most-visited sections of the Appalachian Trail. The farm itself, which dates to 1840, is ready to operate, has a vibrant and growing clientele and a coveted location with easy access to Washington, DC. There were claims General Stonewall Jackson and his men bivouacked here before traveling to the First Battle of the Bull Run in Manassas in 1861. In fact, it was George Washington who surveyed the area. Gen. Joseph E. Johnston is said to have slept on the porch of nearby Ashby Inn after the First Battle of Bull Run, and Col. John Singleton Mosby stayed nearby. Even Ulysses S. Grant is fabled to have camped in the nearby fields. Urban legend or not, there is no dispute that the beauty of this land is irresistible.
You will go for the beauty, stay for the multitudinous functions, and fall in love with the history. You may think you are in heaven, and it may in fact be a glimpse of paradise, but it is Liberty Farm welcoming you to make it your home.
