  • Description


    Hello, my name is Joseph and I am 54 and my wife Randi is 57. We have two kids, one in college and one started his career after college. The kids are around sometimes. We like yoga, mountain biking and exploring the area trails and wineries. We are happy to show guests around. We are have a small 6.5 acre farm in Fairfax Station Virginia, close to DC. It's location is five minutes away from a quaint historic town, Clifton, Virginia. There are 4 horses, more than 10 Nigerian dwarf goats (some are babies), chickens, rabbits, parakeets, a vegetable garden, a pool, an 8 stall barn and a meandering creek on the farm. Its a laid back and fun atmosphere.
