Experience Farm-Based Living at Willowsford
Nestled among over 2,000 acres of conservation land in the southeastern corner of Loudoun County, Willowsford is an “agrihood”, one of a handful of agricultural-focused neighborhoods that has spurred a national trend. It offers farm-to-table community living, giving the families who live there access to everything the 300-acre Willowsford Farm has to offer.
While the working farm might be the centerpiece, the focus extends to all corners of the community. Willowsford maintains 2,000 acres of open space, woodlands and natural habitats. Their core mission centers on “restoring and managing a diversity of native habitats; by encouraging wildlife; by maintaining nature trails and green spaces for recreation and contemplation; by growing and selling fresh food; and by offering educational activities to encourage learning, personal responsibility for and engagement with nature.”
From getting their hands dirty at the community farm to trail rides on the 45+ miles of trails within the community, residents of Willowsford enjoy a healthier, closer, more authentic connection to the land and their neighbors.
The modern agrihood offers a lifestyle trend that’s quickly gaining popularity across the nation, and Willowsford is a premier example. Just this past year, Willowsford was ranked on the RLCLO Real Estate Advisor’s top-selling communities list of 2018. Not only is it the top-selling master-planned community in Virginia but also in the entire Northeast US region.
The success of these communities marks a transition away from the golf courses and health spas that most master-planned communities have been known for, and everyone stands to benefit. Agrihoods offer a more sustainable approach to development. Residents feel a closer connection to the place they call home.
