Jubilation Farm

Jubilation Farm consists of 305.38 acres. The property is primarily open with areas of forest growth and borders Beaverdam Creek for nearly two miles. It is currently subject to an approved development of 54 housing lots. The gift of easement reduces development to a maximum of 6 lots. Each potential parcel is severely restricted by the conservation easement.

The property is a wonderful subject for land preservation and conservation. It's watershed is also preserved through the conservation easement by protecting the surface water flows and drainage on the property from degradation by erosion and animal waste pollution. There are two streams on the property. On the northern border there is an unnamed stream with significant water flow, wetlands and floodplain. On the southern border and bisecting part of the property is Beaverdam Creek. Beaverdam creek feeds into the Potomac River and ultimately into the Chesapeake Bay.  

Jubilation Farm meets the criteria for conservation based on the scenic value of the property. The rolling hillside, pastures, trees and wildlife habitat provide pleasing examples of the scenic boundary between the Piedmont and Blue Ridge elevations.   

The property falls within the Journey Through Hallowed Ground National Heritage Area. Signed into existence by President Bush in 2008, the JTHG NHA recognized the unparalleled cultural, historic and scenic resources within the entire JTHG corridor, encompassing all or part of 15 counties in Pennsylvania, Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia. 

The farm has been in continuous agricultural use and is currently used for raising cattle and hay. 

Jubilation Farm contains over 50 acres of forest with a wide variety of tree species.  The forest is managed by a Virginia Department of Forestry, Forest Management Plan.

The property contains several features which are important conservation resources outlined by Loudoun County. It has steep and moderately steep slopes. 

About ODLC

Founded to protect land and water resources for their natural, scenic, recreational, historic, and agricultural values, the Old Dominion Land Conservancy (ODLC) also seeks to educate the public on why land conservancy is so very important and so easily overlooked.

ODLC accepts land donations, but also tailors conservation easements to meet the specific needs and conservation purposes of each landowner and ODLC. We have been hard at our task for the past 15 years.
