Caledonia Farm

Tours led by retired international broadcaster Phil Irwin will focus on conservation strategies, sustainable agriculture, environmental protection programs, and best management practices.

Caledonia is a 115 acre beef cattle farm, 35 year old farmstay green bed & breakfast, and stop #1 on Virginia’s unique birding & wildlife trail.

Guests may catch & release in the stocked conservation pond, wander pastures surrounded by 2 miles of stone wall fencing adjacent to the Shenandoah National Park, and enjoy incomparable scenery and dark skies later.

History, hospitality, and environmental preservation await your visit to Caledonia Farm.

Phil is founder of the Rappahannock League for Environmental Protection (1970), the last living Piedmont Environmental Council founder (1972), donor of Rappahannock County’s first open space easement, and serves on the board of Scenic Virginia.
