This land used to be owned by the Tabor Farm family in the early 1800s and was a multienerstional farmed that used to encompass 100s of acres of adjacent land. During the mid 1950s the property was sold to the Douglas family that upgraded and retrofitted the traditional, historic wooden post and beam barn to accommodate dairy cows to produce milk until the early 1970s. The land was then broken up and sold by the Douglas family to the Hubbard family where they raised pigs and rented the barn to raise young dairy Holsteins calf’s by the Buford’s.
The land was finally purchased by the current owner and Harris family with the purpose of restoring the historic barn to its former condition while simultaneously building, designing, and planting edible forest gardens and fruit trees with the sole purpose of providing food for the Harris family, nearby neighbors, and the greater Fairfax community.
Overall goal for Serenity Meadows and HarrisValleyOrganics farm is to increase biodiversity, foster sustainable lifestyles, and make a livable income to reinvest into the community and continual building edible forest gardens that will continue to feed the next seven generations.
