Grounded by the Farm

Dec 1, 2021

The Leonard family found themselves dealing with the challenges of urban sprawl and rising land prices. As they started diversifying to include agritainment, new challenges rose.  But there are lots of smiles now, photos with Santa, haunted mazes at Halloween and more! 

Patty Leonard and her family have a long history of dairy farming. In fact, her grandparents were dairy farming in the area now consumed by Washington DC's Dulles Airport until plans to build Dulles came together. That led the family to relocate to Warrenton, a small farm town on Virginia's piedmont. But with the continued growth of the metro area, the Leonards faced rising land prices and looked for ways to diversify years ago.
