Giving Back To The Roots
Airlie is committed to spearheading and participating in community outreach activities that improve our little corner of the world right now - and for generations to come.
In our role as dedicated protector of the land, Airlie hosts guest lecturers and special events on environmental stewardship, sustainable design and green business initiatives. We're also proud to invite local schools and the general public onto our property for educational programs centered on food systems and organic agriculture.
With talent, time and donations, our team supports several non-profit organizations, including the Special Olympics, Fauquier Family Shelter and Fauquier SPCA. Plus, we offer employment to adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities through the Rappahannock-Rapidan Community Services Board.
History lives very much in the present here. It shapes all that we are and all that we do, because we have a powerful legacy to uphold. From Harry Groome's founding of Airlie House and Farm to becoming an "Island of Thought" to today's inspiring resort and next-generation farm.
