Faith like a Mustard Seed Farm
Table Of Contents
Faith like a Mustard Seed Farm offers the seclusion of a rural escape with the option of a "farm stay" on our 26 acre farm in the heart of historic Loudoun County, Virginia, overlooking Catoctin Mountain and the Potomac RIver valley. We offer our “Milk House” cottage with kitchenette and Jodul stove, showcasing artwork from local Loudoun artists, as well as a beautifully decorated room with a full size rope bed.
You can combine your B&B stay with a cooking class hosted by Chef Patricia Glaeser (classically trained New York/Chicago private chef, farm manager and wife!) who will tailor a cooking class to your desire using locally grown ingredients and wines, and with the option of preparing meats, veggies and pizzas on our Big Green Egg grill.
On the farm, we humanely raise pasture heritage pork, Jersey and Brown Swiss dairy cows and GMO-free eggs and riding horses. As we were formally a riding school, we also have a lit riding ring and 10 stalls to board your horses as you travel with your horses. If you desire to take a riding class, we have a partner farm that can make that happen. As a guest, you are welcome to observe daily farm chores, and participate as you desire. Children are welcome - and encouraged!
Lastly, we view this farm as a gift from God. We take great pleasure in sharing the farm, including our rapidly growing dairy cow herd, with neighbors, local schools and church groups, and those interested in working on a farm to learn- for a day, or a working vacation!
Come sip wine looking up into our starlit sky, relax by the pond, milk a cow, pick up eggs, or learn how easy it really is to create amazing food! We hope to see you soon!
