Historic Greenbrier Farms

Visit over 500 acres of farmland at Historic Greenbrier Farms. Originally built in 1914, the restored farm is known for its plant material used for the beatification of landscapes such as Arlington National Cemetery and the White House. Historic Greenbrier’s animal farm featured pigs, chickens, rabbits, ducks, goats, and more for feeding and petting. Groups can take a nature themed tour, go on a Pony Ride, enjoy a hayride around the farm, and even have fun in Sweet Charlie’s Play Area with obstacle courses and play equipment. The trails can be hiked or biked as your group enjoys the farm’s nature views.
