Alexia & Richard
We are a twenty something entrepreneurial artist/farmer team dedicated to sustainable living and unparalleled hospitality. Believers in the power of the share economy it is our mission to preserve the rural area through unconventional and innovative enterprises. Empowering farmers with the creative tools to survive and the deserved access to the marketplace is absolutely essential to keeping the family farm viable. Through combined talents and passion for open space we are building a business that both honors this property and best serves our community. Uniquely situated in Albemarle County’s “urban ring” and just 2 miles from the University of Virginia, we are committed to our responsibility as proprietors, and more importantly, as agricultural educators within an otherwise urbanized population.
Since purchasing Roslyn Farm in 2015 we have remained dedicated to restoring this incredible 1938 property back to its original farming capacity. In doing so we have organically built a multifaceted business around the farm, home, and community that we love. A working farm with a focus on growing and raising our food requirements on site, creating products and services sustained entirely by the farm, and supporting local vendors for what it can't, we provide the following services:
Farm to Table Events
Customizable Menus from our Farm Products
Wedding & Event Hospitality
Bed & Breakfast Lodging
Professional Photography & Art Services
Horseback Riding Lessons, Summer Programs, & Boarding
Weekly Farm Stand (or by appointment)
Every facet of your event or your stay at Roslyn Farm honors the history of this stunning property while incorporating all that it is capable of producing. Most importantly, choosing Roslyn Farm ensures the continued restoration of Albemarle County's most hidden gem while supporting the greatest pursuit of all: farming.
This has been wonderful because it helps us diversify farm revenue and brings excited customers directly to us, giving us the chance to highlight both our products, and our passion for what we do.
