About the Host

Audley Farm foodFor over 250 years, Audley Farm has been a part of American History. Audley was founded in 1749 when Lord Fairfax granted a 3,000 acre estate to Colonel George William Fairfax. In 1764, George Washington’s cousin, Warner Washington, bought half of the estate from Colonel Fairfax, and from that point Audley remained in the Washington family for 138 years.  The most well-known of Audley’s residents was Eleanor “Nellie” Custis Lewis, the adopted daughter of George and granddaughter of Martha Washington. Her historic residence, Audley House, has been completely restored, and is now the centerpiece of Audley Farm.

Nestled at the Northern tip of the Shenandoah Valley, the historic Audley Farm covers 3,000 acres of rolling pasture, and boasts breath-taking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Our expertise includes purebred Angus cattle, thoroughbred equine, hay farming and harvest, and hosting your events, each founded upon the cornerstones of tradition and performance.


Get the chance to meet the crew behind Taste of Blue Ridge’s Root to Table culinary series! It’s not often you’ll find as many chefs present as will be this July 31st under one roof and from so many different establishments. Sit down and share good conversation with some of the greatest minds behind the food scene here in the Shenandoah Valley!
