Valley View Farm in Delaplane, less than 60 miles from downtown Washington, D.C., is a picturesque agricultural setting that is bustling with agri-tourism activities.

Receive a guided hayride tour and local honey tasting experience for the entire family at this historic farm once surveyed by George Washington, camped on by troops during the Civil War, and fox hunted on by General George Patton.
