Favorite Part About The Farm: The farm truly has its own weather. Waking up in the morning and seeing the fog blanketed ponds and feeling the crispness in the air while wearing my favorite jeans and drinking a hot cup of coffee gave me a surreal sense of quiet and serenity. “The Farm” has its own healing qualities, and for me personally provided the time and place to heal and move on.
Favorite Part About The Farm: I have always loved the escape the farm provides. Whether a busy day at work or a hard day at school, the farm provides a place where you can unwind and relax without the business that comes with living in the Washington DC area. Specifically, the screened-in-porch is my favorite place to kick back and hang, especially during a summer storm.
Favorite Part About The Farm: I have always loved the “noise” around the farm. Whether peace and quiet or filled with laughter, it always sounds perfect.

Favorite Time at The Farm: Dusk is my favorite time at Tusculum Farm. This peaceful time of day is when the sunset paints the sky, all of our animals are tucked in for the night, and a cool breeze blows through the trees spreading a calmness throughout the farm.
Favorite Spot at The Farm: I love sitting by the grand fireplace in The Hay Barn. It creates a calming, atmosphere where you feel the urge to stop and rest, even just for a moment. It reminds me to reflect on the simpler joys in life such as gathering with loved ones and just celebrating life.

Favorite Part About The Farm: I love exploring the gardens and all the “secret trails” through them. Exploring makes me feel like a little kid again – enchanted with the world and fascinated by watching it grow around me. It makes you feel small but also lucky to be a part of so much more.

Favorite Place at The Farm: I love to visit with the Alpacas. Each morning when I come to visit them they are so very excited to see me. The Alpacas can be complicated, shy, stubborn, but always hungry.

Favorite Part about The Farm: I love exploring the farm and taking in all of the different views. My favorite is the view from the Veranda looking out over the fields, the white fences, and the ponds. The Farm gives me an amazing sense of calm when I am here, and I look forward to every time I get to drive down the driveway.
