ABOUT US

In 2005, Scott Plein purchased the historic White House Farm property in Page County, Virginia.  After considering several land uses, including a residential community, Mr. Plein decided to enroll the property into a permanent conservation easement held by the Virginia Outdoors Foundation. This provided protection for the farm's working agricultural operations and the unique natural beauty that surrounds the 270 acres. The farm lies next to the South Fork of the Shenandoah River in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, an area renowned for its agriculture, beauty and natural resources.

This process and the resulting conservation easement of the White House Farm became the inspiration for the White House Farm Foundation. The farm provided a model for conservation and restoration, and it became the launching point for subsequent conservation development and education projects. The Foundation is privately funded by the Plein Family Charitable Trust.

We believe in striving for a healthy ecosystem, which encompasses wise use of natural and human resources. Our mission is to enrich individuals with knowledge of and involvement with our natural ecological systems, holistic community planning, and respect for local history and culture.
