Ropes Course Update 5/25/17

Hello Whitehall customers and supporters,
Many of you already know that we are attempting to bring a ropes course to Whitehall Farm in order to provide the revenue we need to continue operating our farming,  educational, and  agritourism business. The county has ruled that we must apply for and secure a Special Permit in order to do this. That can cost as much as $100K, money that we don’t have. We maintain that the agritourism law we operate under allows a ropes course by right so we are appealing the county’s decision. Our appeal hearing is to be held on Wednesday morning June 28, 2017 before the Board of Zoning Appeals in the Board Auditorium, Lobby Level, Government Center Building, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax, Virginia 22035. I know it is a lot to ask, but if your schedule permits and you are so inclined, please come and support us. Public support is critical! We need to fill the place. And if you haven’t signed our petition, please do.

We will answer any questions you may have about this at an open house we are holding at 3PM on June 10th at our market.

If you wish to speak in support of Whitehall at our appeal hearing, please go to
Date is June 28th at 9AM
Application # is A 2017-SP-008

Thank you,
Jeff Waters
Nadine Vazquez
The staff of Whitehall Farm
